We also didn't really know anything about the gallery, other than the two temporary exhibitions we went to see. So we were blown away with what we discovered,
As you might know by now, I don't like taking pictures of the artworks, but look how amazing the gallery is! It is a fabulous use of space, not too much is revealed as you move between rooms, it's a tall but fairly compact building, lots of stairs but you can hear Noddy Holder* speaking to you if you choose to take the lift.
And as if all this wasn't enough, there were lots of Diwali celebrations taking place, we missed a fair bit of it due to hearing the talk but we did get to see some dancing in the foyer.
Anyone fortunate to live closer to this place than we do (it's ust over two hours in the car from here) should thank their lucky stars to have such a fantastic, free resource available to them. We'll be back next year.
Should you be so inclined, here's a video from Bob and Roberta Smith in and around the gallery
