With a late afternoon flight this was a good way to spend a few hours looking around the free art gallery. Still don't understand modern art but a good coffee shop nevertheless, where you can sit outside and people watch at lunchtime.

Loved the Picasso to Warhol Exhibition this year. Fantastic! It's so easy to get to via Public Transport, but I drove and parked in the State Library Public Parking. They have a great cafe. And the $19 I paid to see this exhibit was reasonable for a lovely afternoon spent perusing such wonderful and interesting art.

The AGWA has a little way to go before it can be counted a one of Australia's great galleries, but has made great improvements in its collection in recent years. Formerly a disappointingly small collection of almost exclusively indigenous art, this gallery has made efforts to expand also into contemporary west Australian and regional artists. Hopefully the trustees of this collection will be able to include some more important pieces in the way that the NSW art gallery has done.

Very enjoyable 2 hours spent wandering around the Gallery admiring all the art (paintings, photos & sculptures). A great way to spend some time, even for someone as unartistic as myself.
