Located on the Bawengweng Coast bike path in Taitung (Highway 11 121.5 KM) Laboratory Gallery is a studio operated by local artists Lafin Sawmah and Heidi Yip. Come to the Laboratory Gallery by the Pacific Ocean to enjoy the ocean waves, nice views coffee, and tee. In addition, the gallery also showcases original artworks made by them and other artist friends. Lafin’s driftwood furniture and woodworks, Heidi’s paintings, weaving, potteries, and other crafts, as well as small and unique artworks made by local artist friends, are for sale in the gallery, where new energy of arts and designs congregates. Laboratory Gallery organizes annual exhibitions to foster exchanges among artists from various fields and local cultural scenes.
