Take a journey through the weird and wonderful, the amazing, and the breathtaking at the Art Gallery of South Australia. Featuring a large collection of art from many periods, including modern art, the gallery has a collection to inspire everyone.

Gallery 15

The Art Gallery does not solely focus on one art period. Whether you're a fan of the renaissance, a cubism buff or a lover of all things impressionism you'll find something to admire. The gallery displays Australia, European, Aboriginal and Asian art. You can either spend your time getting lost as you meander through the rooms experiencing everything on offer, or take the educational route and pick up an audio tour or join one of the guided tours. You'll learn a lot about the gallery and its works, plus the best bit is that it is all free.

Memento: Contemporary Photographic Portraits

The gallery offers special exhibits, some which are free and some which incur a small admission fee. The Art Gallery also offers free tours aimed and children, and child friendly activities for families to take part in. Whether you have a budding artist or are trying to open your child to the world of art, it is worth a look at their programs.

Feel free to take pictures while inside the art gallery. Video and flash photography are forbidden, but you can still take some snaps of the impressive works. Entry is free but you might want to bring along a few pennies for the gift shop.

The Art Gallery of South Australia is open daily from 10am-5pm, and closed on Christmas Day. To see what current exhibitions and works are available at the gallery visit their website. If you can't make it down to the gallery then be sure to enjoy some of the work from their online collection.
