Art Gallery Of South Australia Reviews & Ratings
Saw a fantastic exhibition at this Art Gallery, then spent rest of the day taking in the free areas of the gallery (art, textiles). Plus a snack in the gallery's cafe, plus browsing in the gallery's gift store - rounded out the day nicely. Seriously - the gallery gets great visiting exhibitions so it is worth checking their calendar.
The gallery is specific and beautiful. It's a walk through of the influences on Australian art. The Quilty exhibition was fantastic as well, however the guide wasn't as knowledgeable as I would've liked, however it didn't take away from the experience and personal interpretation of the works. They also had a wonderful self-portrait crayon area for all ages and we had a great time drawing ourselves and each other.
In a city that is devoid of any cultural depth. This is a shining beacon of what the place can achieve... A beautiful building with well thought out exhibition spaces and a nice venue for the day explore all the level! Great work Adelaide arts!!
Always a fantastic use of space, a great collection, calm ambience, and a good little cafe near the gift shop. There is enough variety and shifting exhibitions to be able to make visits every few months and be equally entertained.
Just stopped by for a quick lunch which was quite expensive for what it was. The kid's chocolate frog and mousse, @ $10, was nothing short of a bloody ripoff. The dip and the fat chips were tasty.
