Enjoy a drink on entry and wear your finest dinosaur dress up for the chance to win the costume contest.
Exhibition Recent Acquisitions will be opening on Saturday, November 26 at the Art Gallery of South Australia. Showcasing recent acquisitions in painting, printmaking and sculpture, the exhibition considers landscape as a form of representation deeply embedded in questions of identity and belonging. The exhibition questions if landscape is an exhausted genre, or if it can express a new way of being that is reconciled with the past.
