“Free WAG”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Culture for Free? Sure. Established in 1886, the Warrnambool Art Gallery offers a diverse collection of artworks, from elegant European salon paintings to the Avant-garde modernism of the Angry Penguins.Artworks range from the romanticised colonial landscapes of Eugene Von Guerard and Louis Buvelot, to contemporary Australian printmaking by Juan Davila, Barbara Hanrahan and Ray Arnold. An exciting new experience is "Flora non Evidens by Karen Richards". Put on a miners style lamp on you head and get immersed in this instillation.

“Lost ship?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

This gallery is well located in the main street. It has a lovely serene atmosphere and is large enough to display some interesting pieces but small enough to hold the kid's attention for long enough to get around. Moo is all for showcasing local artworks and having different artists and works on display, however it is usually the permanent aquistions of a gallery which interest the visitor. Warrnambool is noted for it's shipwreck history and yet at least one of the most well known works relating to the wreck of the Glen Ard are "in storage". Moo suggests the curator has a think about what vistors want when they come to the gallery and let people know what they have on offer relating to the history of the area . It seems to me that the links with Flagstaff Hill could definitely be strengthened in this regard. Moo is also very keen on gallery shops and this one is lovely. Worth a visit.
