If you love art, then one of the best places to visit is your local art galleries.
Art galleries often offer a variety of works from local to international artists, in different mediums and materials. Although artworks do capture the viewers’ attention by their plastic qualities, they also possess other characteristics that render them objects that can portray ideas of personality, feelings, concepts, and shared experiences. Art galleries also offer an environment of learning. Again, art does not comprise the visual only, artworks were created in a context that relates to past, present, and, at times, future events, so they offer us a glimpse of the world and its history, and the artist’s experience of it as well.
