The gallery is housed in a beautiful Art Deco Building that has been well maintained. The building itself is reason enough to visit. The staff are super friendly and efficient. Exhibitions are varied and interesting, however I would advise checking what is on display before visiting to make sure it is to your taste. Highly recommended.

This is now known as the GFI Gallery.... and keeps up with current art trends, hosts regular workshops, hosts a Students' Winter/Summer School and, generally, does so much within our city to promote Art amongst all spheres of society! They are to be applauded!

The entire collection was purchased... More
