A really challenging and worthwhile exhibition. An achievement by the staff to bring together all the items

The exhibitions are always of good value and this time there were two superb exhibitions; the Hyper Real in particular but also the Streeton at War special exhibition.

Staff are always keen to show you where to go and the place has become even more welcoming over the past two years.

We really enjoyed the works by the prominent Australian artists. However were were dismayed at the child-like and amateurish paintings that some people considered art!

Love this gallery! a wonderful collection of old favourite and new works. Always an interesting show on, current one not to our taste but the rest of the gallery was brilliant. Loved seeing Blue Poles in the flesh!
