Geelong Gallery

I recently visited stunning Geelong and the Geelong Gallery. As a lover of all things artistic, I cannot help but feel a sense of excitement whenever I visit this impressive gallery. Let me take you on a journey through the highlights of the Geelong Gallery and share with you my personal perspective on what makes this place so special.

Firstly, let’s talk about the permanent collection. The Geelong Gallery boasts an impressive collection of over 6,000 Australian and international pieces, ranging from colonial era paintings to modern-day masterpieces. As I wandered through the airy, high-ceilinged rooms, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of awe at the historical significance of some of the works on display. The collection truly is a testament to the rich cultural heritage of our nation.

But let’s be real, sometimes we just want to see something that’s a little bit edgier. If that’s what you’re after, you won’t be disappointed by the ever-changing exhibitions that the Geelong Gallery has to offer. From the Geelong art prize to the Archibald 100 exhibit, there’s always something new and exciting to see. And if contemporary art is your thing, you simply must check out the Rone Exhibition. As a local artist, Rone’s work is truly breathtaking and not to be missed.

Now, let’s talk about the staff. It’s one thing to have an impressive collection and exciting exhibitions, but it’s the people that really make the experience special. I was impressed by how welcoming and knowledgeable the staff were. When I arrived 30 minutes early for the Archibald 100 exhibit, they checked to see if it was okay to go in and made me feel right at home. It’s little touches like this that really make a difference.

One of the things I love about the Geelong Gallery is the use of QR codes to provide information. Not only is it convenient and easy to use, but it’s also a great way to delve deeper into the stories behind the artwork. It was fascinating to explore the “self-talk” committee of curiosity versus controversy that one of the reviewers mentioned. It’s a testament to the way that art can make us think and question the world around us.

And finally, let’s talk about the location. Geelong is a prosperous regional city around an hour by train south-west of Melbourne, and the Geelong Gallery is located next to Johnstone Park on Little Malop Street. I can’t think of a more picturesque place to spend an afternoon than strolling through the park and then immersing yourself in the world of art at the Geelong Gallery.

So there you have it, my friends. A brief guide to the Geelong Gallery and why I think it’s such a special place. Whether you’re a seasoned art lover or just looking for a fun day out, there’s something here for everyone. So grab your friends, your family, or even just your trusty headphones and head on over to the Geelong Gallery. Who knows what you might discover? If you are a lover of art and history you should also pay a visit to the MOPA: Museum of Play and Art.
