The quality and presentation of the exhibits in the Art Gallery deserves a much wider audience! From my first telephone inquiry through to front of house staff, and the attendants in the Gallery itself, everyone was pleasant and informative. It's just a pity that a feature exhibition (Trent Parke's 'Black Rose' photography) was tucked away downstairs at the rear of... More

They seem to have a lot of art, but keep most of the good works are 'In storage' for some reason, may be they don't want the public to see the good stuff or they may be they have flogged it? Cafe expensive! shop expensive, but worth a visit to see what the gallery supposedly has in storage. You can... More

Enjoy a leisurely stroll through centuries of well displayed Australian and International art. Entry is free to the gallery and collection; special shows sometimes charge a fee.

Visited the Trent Parke photographic exhibition which was very thought provoking. No help to you I'm afraid as the exhibition has just closed but the point is the Art Gallery of SA always seems to have very interesting special exhibitions on and it is worth keeping an eye on their website to find out what is available at the time...

The most wonderful little art gallery with some exquisite Asian collections of furniture and art. Well worth a visit. Allow yourself time to really look around. There is also a fantastic restaurant that is well worth the visit.

The art ranges from the familiar and classic to items that shock and make you think and look again. The furniture, glassware, and lace are very interesting.
