We spent a pleasant and enriching afternoon at the Perth Cultural Centre, which is home to both the Western Australian Museum and the Art Gallery of Western Australia. While both are of note, we really loved strolling through AGWA, which was founded in 1895. The extent of the holdings impressed me. These are set in chronological groupings called, for example, “Your Collection 1960 – 1980,” which gives visitors an opportunity to observe changes in artistic style and taste. I especially appreciated the integration of indigenous art into the galleries.
