Two galleries give you the chance to discover the diversity of Island talent and established international artists on show at Quay Arts. On the first floor, the Clayden Gallery is an excellent space to see and buy work from local artists as well as work by schools, colleges and collectives, exploring a limitless range of themes and ideas.
