We visit a lot of art galleries in our travels, and Quayside was one of my very favorites! The artwork is beautiful (much more enjoyable than the museum next door, TBH). In addition to original paintings and photographs, they have prints, ceramics, jewelry, and other forms of art, all by a myriad of local artists. The people who work there were all quite helpful and friendly. Artwork is available for a wide range of budgets. I saw 12x18 prints available for as little as $30, and beautiful large paintings for as much as $1,000. We bought an original by Ellen Holland for $120.
It's free to go in. 2 floors of art work and the 3rd floor technically the middle full of prints. They had all kinds of art not just paintings. The ladies inside were super sweet. Almost all of it is for sale. If I didn't have to fly home I definitely would have left with a few pieces. Worth the stop in!
