As I have just about finished my own painting I thought I would go to see the establishment's representation of what is considered (good?) Art. Maybe it will inspire me for my next painting - maybe not. There were a few nice pictures although nothing really grabbed my eye and then there was the usual bit of the ridiculous.
Below is a quick summary of what was there.
