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 in Batanes. See that fish? I'm so in love with it. Hopeful to buy it this year ❤

Bought 2 works of art here. Had a wonderful experience as the artist, Mr. Awee was so accommodating and down to earth. He 1st hand gave the history of his works and their culture. I'll surely recommend this place to everyone to take time and appreciate their works at Yaru gallery. Dios mamajes to them.

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.
