Pepper St Arts Centre is more than pictures hanging on the wall. This is a vibrant community space with a gallery of changing exhibits, regular art and social groups, arts and crafts workshops and children's art classes. They even have a cafe and a beaut art book library you can sit and browse while sipping your coffee. But there is no time for that. There is that gift list to attend to.
