Visits to the Art Gallery of South Australia

Members of the Burnside Painting Group are invited to join a small group of members who meet on specific nominated dates to enjoy a tour of exhibitions on display at the Gallery.

Our Art Gallery of SA visits will recommence on February 10th 2021, with the first visit highlighting “Sculpture in The Gallery”.


We meet at the rear gallery cafeteria at 10.30am.  Members who wish to attend are required to notify our Enrolments Officer, as numbers are limited.

The Gallery has some interesting exhibitions scheduled for 2021, including:


In February, our tour is Sculpture in the Gallery.

This will encompass viewing a wide range of sculpture situated throughout the Gallery and possibly a few works just outside the Gallery's walls!   The Gallery is rich in sculptural works and this tour will highlight these solid, three dimensional works providing information about the work, its maker and its placement in the Gallery.


In March we tour the exhibition Dark Matter, Bright Light and related works.

Dark Matter, Bright Light showcases recent exhibitions of contemporary international and Australian works of art alongside iconic works in the collection. This display brings together artists who often use elemental material such air, light, fire and stone, or mirrors, lenses or prisms to explore the mechanics of vision, concepts of infinity and the outer edges of perception.


In April we tour Clarice Beckett: The present moment

This is one of the Gallery's major exhibitions in 2021, opening 27th February and closing on 16th May 2021 and it is a ticketed exhibition.
