Art Gallery Of South Australia, Adelaide Reviews
I love the SA Art Gallery and always feel uplifted after a visit! There are interesting exhibitions besides the general collection and at the moment there is one called "Divided Worlds". Coming up is the Impressionist Exhibition which I can't wait to see. Love the Gallery workshop space now available for children (and adults) to try out some creative sketching /colouring after being inspired by what they've seen. Good to see the various programs now available too. Love the stainless steel, egg-shaped sculpture installed out front during the Fringe. I hope it stays!
The Art Gallery of South Australia showcases a good mix of traditional and contemporary art. The building flows nicely from one exhibit to the next. The gallery is the perfect size and not too big, enabling you to view all the artworks without rushing, giving time to appreciate artists works. School holiday and teenage clubs provide youth with exciting opportunities to socialize and join in the art community.
It has been over twenty years since I last visited the art gallery. I thought it would be an educational visit to bring my kids to see some of the exhibits. I hadn't realised it was so inappropriate for young children. I brought a pram and it was a nightmare trying to navigate the multi-level levels and to take the back entrance which involved an extra long walk down a narrow alley and a mini disability lift that was out of order. I entered the gallery with a coffee which the ladies at the front desk saw but then on entering the gallery I got approached by two security guards who politely asked me to get out as my coffee wasn't allowed to be in the gallery (which would have been much less humiliating if pointed out by the ladies before I entered the gallery). I don't think I've ever felt so humiliated in all my life. Such a shame because it ruined my enjoyment of some of the lovely exhibits that were on display.
This place had a different scenic atmosphere for most of the historical displays. We even enjoyed their "coffee restuarant'. Well worth the visit.
The best gallery out of big Australian cities! Loved the exhibition and the mix of old and modern art! Kids had a place to work on their art too!
