This little art museum is really nice! Free entry, which is a plus, and there was a wide variety of art. They had an aboriginal exhibit, as well as a nice sculpture exhibit with (I believe) local people who entered their art into the exhibit. It was small but a really nice place to escape the heat!
Fantastic every time I visit. Such refreshment to the soul. David Griggs exhibition was cool. So was the 15' high tapestry of a woman in a white dress. And, the top attic- style gallery nearly always seems dedicated to women's craft - pottery, textiles, ceramics, food gathering quality.
Nice place, very contemporary and somewhat advant guard art--good selection of that. Large enough to house different galleries, small enough that you can spend half or quarter of your day at. A very pleasant place.
Spacious and well presented. Interesting exhibitions and artworks from the area.
It's free. There's good art inside. The staff is friendly. What's not to love? Go!
