The newest addition to the Central Coast art gallery scene is HANG - Nicole Ruiz Gallery located at Saratoga on the NSW Central Coast.

Hang Gallery - Main Entry

Formerly of Hang Gallery and Cafe at Brooklyn, Artist Nicole Ruiz has opened her home to the public to showcase her work.

On the first Sunday of every month (or by appointment), she welcomes you into her home to tour the studio, talk about her style and any of the work that is exhibited or online.

Nicole's style is modern mixed media. Her artwork captures the beauty of the natural environment she is surrounded by in her seascapes, landscapes, fauna and flora still life. Nicole describes her art as "an intimate study & celebration of the effortless beauty found in nature".

The gallery is an easy day trip (1hr 40 min drive) from Sydney and is a lovely stop if you are looking for something to do on a rainy day or which does not involve the beach on the Central Coast.

Hang Gallery - End Of The Line

My husband, son and I visited on a wet, rainy Sunday. There was parking out the front of the Gallery and as we viewed the artworks, we spoke to Nicole about her style while enjoying a good coffee.

Among the larger works, there are prints and extractions for sale, which is a nice touch as you can take home an affordable piece of art if the budget does not stretch itself to one of the large scale originals.

Nicole discussing her work in the Gallery

Hang is a lovely gallery set amongst the trees overlooking the Brisbane and Kincumber Broadwater, the day we visited, the French fireplace was stoked to keep us warm and the coffee and banana bread were delicious and a nice treat after the drive.

Hang is a tranquil, family friendly gallery where the artworks on the wall complement the view outside.

How unusual having people visit your studio/home...guess you would always need to keep it clean on the day its open;)

Hi, Thank you for your great review! We went to visit Nicole's gallery yesterday after spending the day in Terrigal. My husband and I really loved her work. Such a great style, but more so, the beauty of her paintings. We have commissioned her to paint us the tortoise swimming in the aqua blue sea as it was already sold. We are having it painted on an even bigger canvas as per her suggestions. Just stunning. Thanks
