Art appreciation..



We were in the city yesterday to see the Lester Prize for Portraiture exhibition at Art Gallery WA. Amazing series of portraits by Australian artists but not everyone was impressed. There were a few school groups visiting the gallery, the young lad above was fast asleep..couldn't resist a quick snap before his teacher came striding around the corner to drag him off. Was one of those hot and busy days yesterday, didn't get a chance to edit the many shots I took so will show you my favourites from the exhibition tomorrow. Happy Friday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. Wonder if this is the way most young men feel when they visit an art gallery 😉

  1. For me it depends on the art. What I see here would make me wander off in search of Impressionists.

  2. I was crazy for all kinds of visual art when I was that age, but I was in a minority. However I did sleep through a production of Hamlet though while on a school trip.

  3. Some art I like, others I don't, but I certainly wouldn't fall asleep inside the gallery. Oh young people :)

  6. That young man is certainly not a "visual" person. Being a truly visual person myself, it's hard for me to understand anyone who isn't moved by images of all kinds.

  10. If he was tired enough to fall asleep there, he must have been exhausted.

  11. Maybe he was just "resting his eyes". That's what my kids always used to say when they didn't want to admit to falling asleep.

  12. 'the young lad above' on the couch is the artistic object! ;)

  13. No way, Grace, he was asleep?!!!
    Ignorance is everywhere, I saw it yesterday, too.
    Let´s be happy we are not that way, but walk with open eyes...
    Happy Friday. Off to clean the condo, argh ;-)

  16. Most school children see visiting a museum as waisted time.... especially boys I am afraid.

  17. Hah! A wonderful bit of serendipity to come across this boy being a boy.
