We visited Hannah Blackmore's fine exhibition of landscape painting. She was there to talk about her paintings and we got cards and a print. The exhibition has closed but look her up at hannahblackmore.com

So many interesting shops in this precinct and little alleyways. If you looking for a souvenir or a gift this is the perfect spot. It is expensive but there are also a lot of bargains. Well worth a visit. Quaint.

Yes, you can take photos for person use throughout Salamanca Arts Centre. However there may be some exhibitions where this is not allowed. If in doubt, please ask the gallery sitters for that particular exhibition.
