If you want to visit, the shop opens late in the afternoon. Paintings feature locals - landscape, lighthouse, traditional houses, and people of Batanes; there are also mixed media arts. Bring cash, you might want to buy something and... there no debit/credit card readers anywhere...More

Small and simple but full of charm, it's the hub of the Ivatan art community. Drop by, even if you don't end up buying anything it's food for your soul.

I love the paintings! It's good that young artists grouped together to sell souvenirs and their art. Their ref magnet would be more pricey than others but definitely more beautiful.

I was able to buy a painting done by a local artist. It was collage made of denim pockets and painted to be "bahay na bato" of the Ivatans. Loved the colors. It is my mom's favorite souvenir item from Batanes
