I had really wanted to visit AGA for some time - but, sadly, now that I've seen it I've been left underwhelmed (I have never said that about any art gallery that I have visited before - and I've seen some unusual ones over the...More

Expected to see some paintings from past artist like Dali, Rembrandt, Monet, etc... None were available. The new art was small and unexciting.

Fabulous opportunity to see different installations. Each has a different feel and some I liked some I didn't but they all made me think. Once I was done it was nice to have a cool drink on the patio.

When we visited the 2.floor was closed due an up coming new exhibition. We mainly visited to view modern art, and didn’t find much interesting.

It's a beautiful building, architecturally. I expected there to be more gallery space. DD liked it, and found the main gallery to be the most interesting. I also liked the space for an artist in residence, to see someone creating something. But overall I was...More

I enjoy the variety of presentation which helps me step outside of my comfort zone of art appreciation. I do learn from the presentations. I renewed my membership to encourage more frequent visits.

I was in and out of here in twenty minutes, an entire floor was closed which I guess could have effected this - however the floors that were open had hardly anything worth spending a lot of time on. While a nice gallery, I really...More
