I visited the current art exhibition yesterday - it is spectacular, especially the Burtynsky/Adams show, and a beautiful little Tom Thompson exhibit. My only beef with the B/A show was that the lighting was so low it was very difficult to view the black and white photos.
It's a wonderful destination outing for a day. The setting, the grounds and trails are lovely at this time of year.
The visit was marred however, in an attempt to get some lunch. This is a fairly remote location so one expects after a journey to at least have a decent cup of coffee. After the art, finding the café was the first challenge, (map was no help and there was no signage or security. Upon entering, the person in charge was screaming at a couple who'd complained that they'd waited over an hour for food that had arrived cold. And she told the couple she wasn't even getting paid to do this! There was a busload of Japanese tourists who looked equally bewildered and we exited promptly. I've been to many world class galleries and this was the worst café experience I've ever had. Otherwise, this was a wonderful visit with excellent and friendly service from front desk, docent, and parking lot staff.
The gift shop seems disorganized and a bit junky despite the fact there are some lovely things there.
If you have membership to another gallery (I have membership at the Albright-Knox), don't forget to take it. Reciprocal privileges are a nice bonus.
