The displays in this gallery mix the artistic and decorative together in a seamless presentation around themes such as seduction and death! The many items on display are just a fraction of those kept by the gallery and their collection of Australian art includes aboriginal, colonial and modern. 'Realms of wonder', the current exhibition focuses on Jain, Hindu and Islamic art of India and is well worth a visit. The gallery cafe had a barista who drew exotic patterns and faces on my cappuccino! Amazing!

We loved the Realms of wonder exhibition, the spiritual art of India. This well curated exhibition was a real revelation and well worth a visit. Again we didn't have time to visit the permanent exhibition but the glimpses had of will certainly ensure we return.

With paintings displayed in chronological order so styles are mixed made this an unusual visit. so many paintings also displayed on one wall made it crowded and confusing. Small and quick to have a walk through.

When you visit North Terrace in Adelaide its hard to miss the Art Gallary its one of the unique features in Adelaide, and its worth a visit, there is cafes in the Art Gallery and you can enjoy it with family and friends.

First The building itself. TOgetherg with others on NOrth TCe, a splendid example of Architecture.
The collections are beautifull hung and arranged.Decorative Silver from the early days of the state I particularly enjo.
Early colonial art before federation of States is most interesting. As one wanders through modern, contemporary, indigenous to view and enjoy.
THE Shop is a little gem for presents and reminders, There is a cafe which opens onto a courtyard,, Goo eat with the Rodins.!
