THE FACADE
With a mixture of Moroccan and Oriental styling, with Euro-Grecan arches and constructed in a strong red brick, the outside of the Qamar Art Gallery is just as mixed and thrown together as the inside.

INSIDE THE GALLERY
Lilting flute music or panpipes often play softly in the background to create a calming and relaxing feel.  The walls are painted either off-white, soft yolk yellow, caramel or beige depending on which wall the visitor is looking at.  The flooring can change just as dramatically, though the upper three floors tend to be of various wood parquets or timbers, while the lowest floor has an assortment of tiles.  Unlike most galleries, the Qamar has a number of nooks and crannies, small rooms, corners, sitting areas, corners and twisty-turny places, where a visitor can get quite lost.  When someone looks at the navigational map, they sometimes believe it is a work of abstract art.

THE ART
Abstract can be found near traditional, modern sculpture beside impressionist paintings.  Many of the sculptures have \'please touch\' signs beside them or on their plaque, as the sensation of touch is usually welcome by the sculptors - the paintings are a different story.  There are a lot of local artists featured in the gallery, which is ever changing within, though there is a rumour that the artwork simply shifts around.
