Maitland Regional Art Gallery is a gallery that you definitely add to your regular viewing cycle. But where to begin?? The redesigned building is a wonderful example of an architect taking what is beautiful and old mixing in what is new and now and coming up with a functional art space with a wide variety of viewing areas. The gallery attracts many of the major touring exhibitions as well as having faith in local projects and artists. At any moment you may find art, photography, ceramics or sculpture on view. The permanent collection, particularly works on paper, is wonderful. And the kids are always catered for with a permanent viewing space set aside for them; parents welcome too. To build on this there is always an interactive art happening linked to the kids exhibition that invites the kids to show their talent.
But there are more decisions. Do I visit the cafe before I view or do I wait till I have finished; maybe both? The choice may be to have a meal at a table or just coffee on the lounges and read a book from the reference library. Time must be left to browse through the Gallery shop where art pieces from current or previous exhibitions are available at reasonable prices.
Maitland Regional Art Gallery is definitely worth the trip and no parking or access problems.
