“dont miss out on glass and the 12 exhibition!”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

even if the Art Gallery was only partly accessible due to rearrangements for next exhibition, those two mentioned special events are a must from my point of view. You will be surpriesed by the creativity of the artists show in wide open rooms at the first floor!

“Good glass collection, other little surprises”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

Nice glass works, also a cool Sidney Nolan 7 panel painting "Desert Storm".

Also got a good shop for buying book and artsy stuff.

Not very big with an eclectic collection so can be quite surprising - something for everyone.

Free and right next to the Perth train station so well worth a look.

“Yr 12 Perspectives - enlightening!”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

Its wonderful to see an exhibition of this caliber being presented by high school students. I was moved to tears by more than one of the works and was impressed by the interpretation of the world around these very talented young artists!
