We usually visit Newcastle at least once a year and always include the art gallery in our time there. The collection changes every time and we have found it always delightful and often surprising and challenging. Well worth an hour or two of your time.

We attend the Art Gallery each year mainly for a get together with our Financial Planner and his clints, where we have a few drinks and Finger food, but certainly not to be missed is the fine display of artwork exhibited.

A large and welcoming art gallery with a wide variety of local and Australian art. Upstairs there is a Japanese sculpture exhibition which is interesting if not odd.

I visited here with a friend after not coming since I was a teenager. There were ceramics upstairs and floral works downstairs. It’s a small galley, but there’s lots inside to see.

We both enjoyed the current display, especially the prints by Fiona Hall. Also we saw a Margaret Preston we had never seen before. I had a most enjoyable chat with one of the attendants. Our time was well spent.

The best installation was of a set of photographs of an Australian Asiana stunned who was expressing her confusion about her identity. Not so keen on the others.
