Thanks to an extremely generous donation by the Parrott Foundation, we are guardians of a large number of oil paintings by local favourite Manly MacDonald.

These paintings, which were the private collection of Jack and Bernice Parrott, were displayed proudly in the basement gallery of their home. Now, we have a number of these paintings on display at all times within the gallery.
