“Don't miss this.”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Adelaide residents are very lucky to have such a wonderful gallery, diverse and so interesting. I was lucky enough to be visiting during the Turner from the Tate exhibition which was very enjoyable.

“inspired display of art works”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

A number of galleries had themes eg "the Human Condition" and displayed works from many arts, countries and eras in interesting arrangements. Some juxtapositions were truly thought provoking. We had to drag ourselves away!

“Memorable:Turner from Tate at the Art Gallery of South Australia”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

My husband, a great fan of Turner's work was mesmerised by the exhibition at the Art Gallery. We spend over 2 hours at our own pace, and occasionally overhearing the explanations of works by the art gallery volunteers. The exhibition was extremely well organised with the large number of visitors able to move about at their discretion. Having recently been to MONA in Hobart, I was a little surprised that they did not use iPod/audio technology at Turner, as it had worked so well at MONA.

“Turner from the Tate”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Went especially to see the Turner exhibition and was not disappointed. Although the exhibition had been running for almost several months, it had still drawn a good crowd on the day we went. But everyone kept moving and it was not difficult to move around. Was disappointed that the description cards beside each item were almost impossible to read in the dim light due to the lavender background and non-bold font used.
