The Met is a great place to see what local artists are up to and features changing exhibitions with works at reasonable prices. The Chocolate Box Cafe is next door to pause and refresh with great coffee and food in the vill;age green setting.

Relatively easy to find and off road parking available. Definitely worth a visit if you want to view some good and average local art & craft. Attentive gallery personnel, clean and all work well displayed. Certainly worth a browse.

This gallery showcases some amazing art works of different media by local artists. It's nice to browse through and/or take something home. Wide range of prices, so something for everyone.
