I enjoyed great available and knowledgeable staff. I particularly admired the curator’s taste in the display. They organised the various works of art (various medium too) in a smart way, that is they found a theme, a thread, which I found subtle and able to...More

When we were there, there were some nice exhibits but the experience cannot help being a disappointment to anyone who knows the Sarjeant Gallery's normal home - which is an architectural gem with a wonderful collection.

Sergeant is a museum-gallery right in the middle of town, close to i-site and everything. Mainly modern art, lots of local art.

The original Sarjeant Gallery is going to be upgraded (big job!) but this "pop-up shop" is still worth a visit. Free entry, interesting little gallery shop, very friendly receptionist the day we went.
