On a recent trip to Southampton Dan and I decided to visit the Art Gallery. I had always thought about it when finding myself around the vicinity but either got there too late or torrential rain had decided that we went to IKEA instead.
'The gallery is based in Southampton’s Civic Centre and opened in 1939. It offers the opportunity to enjoy high-quality exhibitions ranging from painting, sculpture and drawing, to photography and film.
As well as a permanent collection, there are displays that change regularly to ensure new experiences with each visit. The gallery holds an internationally important collection of over 5,300 works of art.'
