Pe­nang, a hub for home­grown artists, may run­neth over with street art, but you’d be sur­prised by its lack of bona fide art gal­leries. The fol­low­ing es­tab­lish­ments re­ceive top marks in our books for some or all of the fol­low­ing: 1) lov­ing cu­ra­tion by ex­pe­ri­enced art en­thu­si­asts; 2) un­con­ven­tional though eas­ily nav­i­ga­ble venue; 3) strong com­mu­nity in­volve­ment such as host­ing artist res­i­den­cies or or­gan­is­ing lo­cal events.
