Ponder's Rona Gallery
Whether you have an hour or just a few minutes passing by you’ll love dropping into Rona Gallery. It’s a world apart. Although many have tried, there is no imitating Richard Ponder’s art -- his use of a palette knife and colour sense is unsurpassed and both his abstract and landscapes have an inimitable flair.
