The "Muse" Art Gallery was formerly owned by Sirus Yume and Suoh Yume, but has since passed into it's curator Rheisa Dirleel's hands. It is located in Entertainment Plaza of the Corellian District, Nar Shaddaa. If you wish to sell art to the gallery or make a purchase, reach out to her.
Its secret function was to serve as base for the Shadow Syndicate, but the gallery's connection to the underworld was only known within the criminal circuit by way of mouth. Contact Rheisa if you had business with the Syndicate and want to make inquiries in the absence of leaders Sirus and Suoh. ICly, notes were dropped into the golden monkey-lizard statue in the lobby, but Rheisa's clueless and so it's possible that business was left verily unfinished when the Yumes disappeared.

Handbags for Sale-
A small rack to the left of the entrance showcases a few handbags for sale, stitched by hand from slick, black fur and some pebbly, yellowish hide. There's no sign to tell what creature(s) was sacrificed in their making. Other small articles of clothing such as jackets or utility belts also occupy this rack from time to time. All for IC sale. Code-wise, they follow tiny-small-large container commands.
There are a few paintings of landscapes that punctuate the lobby and art room. There were also a number of paintings depicting the Galactic Civil War in gory detail, with a slant against the Imperial view. Recently though, those images have all disappeared, quite hastily, and nothing has been acquired yet to fill in the gaps.
One painting of note depicts a bloodied, Empire-aged stormtrooper helmet, laying on the ground. It's partially clutched in the talons of a gnarly avian foot. Just a small tuft of red feathers is visible fluffing into the upper corner of the image.
Mostly wood and stone carvings, some as small as a finger, others as big as a small child. There is one collection in a display case that is filled with primitively shaped forms of animals and Togruta-silhouetted people. Hidden among some of those displayed on the wall is a more human form, carved in the same, stylized shape as the others. It is a robed, bearded man with a few, crudely etched items hanging from his belt - pouches and a cylinder.
A large, ancient Ryl statue takes up some floor space in the exhibition area, as does the newest collection: synthstone and gypryst statues by the late Trometh Hirk-Bwu'ken. The stars of that collection are the "twins": a pair of female Bothans, identicle in appearance. They hold a quarterstaff in one hand. The other is stretched upwards and outwards, clutching a small, glass orb. Inside of it, the ever moving gyprsyt swirls and roils about. Their robes, frozen in stone, whirl around theirankles, their mouths open in a wordless, eternal shout.
Black/white/red patterned mostly. Vases, pots, urns, pitchers, and sculpted pieces, too. Some have a more sophisticated glaze of green, black, and blue. On occasion, pottery or carved box pieces or baskets are also for IC sale in the room. They, too, function like a container, able to hold items.
All hand crafted - glass and precious stone beads on delicate, metal strands or translucent wire. There are also hammered metal bracelets and chokers.
