Art Gallery of South Australia…

On our second day in Adelaide we went for wander down North Terrace in the heart of the city. Much of the space between North Terrace and the River Torrens is occupied by cultural institutions and other public buildings including the Art Gallery of South Australia, the Museum, State Library, Parliament House, Government House, War Memorial and the University.

So many interesting places to look into – however being pressed for time and with young children with limited attention spans we decided to start at the Art Gallery as it also had an exhibition titled “Fashion Icons” (I am in a household of four women after all :)).

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

My youngest loved this display – thats my iPhone wielding child there 🙂

Unfortunately I don’t know who the artist was or what their piece was actually titled but it looked very interesting to the lens…
