Fun at the art gallery

Auckland Art Gallery has been prettied up and re-opened a couple of weeks ago. 15,000 or so works in the collection with 800 on display at any one time. We visted twice in one day and noticed things that were there in the afternoon that weren’t there in the morning. They must really be having fun with switching around the artworks.

It’s been years since I visited and there were many familiar pieces as well as new ones. Bill Hammond’s Japanese painting is one of my favourites there and worth visiting just for that.

Most artworks are not to be touched. But one exhibition encourages interaction with kaleidoscopes and tables of paper, stencils, paper punches and colouring pencils. Afternoon craft time is fun for kids both big and small.

    Hi Alessandra, I have entered this month. I’m not such a sweet tooth but some weekends I like a pastry or two…(like today)…
