This gallery has a rotating display including the following artworks

Khep-Mik-Lap's "Splash"

This square of canvas features patches and splotches of colours. It is almost as though someone got several cans of paint and just flung them at it. But there must be more to it than that, anyone could do that. No, this is truly the work of a master and is a fine example of modern art.

Larry Curb's "Twist of Fate"

This piece of art stands six feet tall and is constructed from sand blasted, heat blackened metal. Its twisted shape denotes the artist's conception of his home city, a land filled with trouble and strife. That or he found some bits left when the Drum burned down and thought he'd make a quick buck.

Bolt Fursley's "It Was Like That When I Found It"

This canvas has been painted black with oils and features a splotch of red and yellow which sits squarely in the centre of the painting. While it looks as though someone with a mustard and ketchup bottle could achieve the same effect for considerably less than the fifty thousand dollars the Art Museum paid for it, only an unashamed modern artist could sell it for that without giggling.

Linel Farst's "There's Something Wrong With My Duster"

One would be forgiven for thinking this artwork was roadkill from an exotic aviary (and given some modern art, this would be quite plausible). Masses of colourful feathers of different lengths and shapes have been stuck onto a canvas backing in no discernable pattern. It is colourful and just that little bit distressing to ornithologists.

Mandy-Loo Bellomi's "The Last Fish"

This painting depicts the naked presence of an Ankh-Morpork beauty, one whose modesty is maintained by the eponymous fish. Littered with symbols of fishing, and fruit, this dreamlike rendering of the fattened female flesh reminds one of the plumper, prosperous times and leaves one considering not only the fish and fruit as food but the woman herself who seems ready to be served on the silver platter on which she stands.
