hi all – looking for a nudge in the right direction!

I’m working with a theme that uses a custom post type ‘gallery’. Posts display a thumbnail grid of attached images.

How do I go about grabbing the first, say, four attachments to a selected gallery post and displaying them as a two by two thumbnail grid in another page’s sidebar.

Example – Art faculty page on a college website has thumbs and links to the two art-related photo galleries.

I’ve been playing with the Special Recent Posts PRO plugin that normally does me proud but it’s not picking up the custom post type.

Any help really appreciated – am I overlooking a simpler solution?
