The Gallery is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays - 10am - 6pm - and other times by appointment.

Karl says “Many of the Island’s established artists are already well known and their artwork is regularly displayed and purchased, however, there are many Artists whose talent has yet to be seen in public and I really hope that “Garretts Gallery” will be able to provide exhibition space for those Artists in order that fresh new talent can be seen on the Island”
