Horizontal shot of the staircase at the Art Gallery of Onatrio . Increased the contrast , whites and dropped shadow . Cropped it to where I thought had the best result .

I shot this picture of Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum from the Glasgow University grounds. From this location you really get a feel for how old Glasgow would have been with some incredibly iconic buildings, the hustle and bustle of the Enlightenment and the shipyards working as hard and fast as they could.

A gallery rep told me this was the best place to photograph this staircase . I cropped out what I thought was dead space , Also cropped it to center the curves .

Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki is the principal public gallery in Auckland, New Zealand, and has the most extensive collection of national and international art in New Zealand. It frequently hosts travelling international exhibitions.


Set below the hilltop Albert Park in the central-city area of Auckland, the gallery was established in 1888 as the first permanent art gallery in New Zealand.


The building originally housed the Auckland Art Gallery as well as the Auckland public library opening with collections donated by benefactors Governor Sir George Grey and James Tannock Mackelvie. This was the second public art gallery in New Zealand opened three years after the Dunedin Public Art Gallery in 1884.


The main gallery building was originally designed by Melbourne architects Grainger & D'Ebro to house not only the art gallery but also the City Council offices, lecture theatre and public library. It is constructed of brick and plaster in an early French Renaissance style and was completed in 1887, with an extension built in 1916.[4] It is three storeys high, with an attic in the steep pitched roofs, and a six storey clock tower. The building was registered as a Category I heritage item by Heritage New Zealand on 24 November 1983, listed with registration number 92.

The Saatchi Gallery is a London gallery for contemporary art, opened by Charles Saatchi in 1985 in order to exhibit his collection to the public. It has occupied different premises, first in North London, then the South Bank by the River Thames, and finally in Chelsea, its current location. Saatchi's collection—and hence the gallery's shows—has had distinct phases, starting with US artists and minimalism, moving to the Damien Hirst-led Young British Artists, followed by shows purely of painting, and then returning to contemporary art from America in USA Today at the Royal Academy in London. A 2008 exhibition of contemporary Chinese art formed the inaugural exhibition in the new venue for the gallery at the Duke of York's HQ.

The gallery has been an influence on art in Britain since its opening. It has also had a history of media controversy,[2] which it has actively courted, and has earned extremes of critical reaction. Many artists shown at the gallery are unknown not only to the general public but also to the commercial art world; showing at the gallery has provided a springboard to launch careers.[citation needed]

In 2010, it was announced that the gallery would be given to the British public, becoming the Museum of Contemporary Art for London

The parent organization of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery is the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy, founded in 1862. It is one of the oldest public arts institutions in the United States. In 1890, Buffalo entrepreneur and philanthropist, John J. Albright, a wealthy Buffalo industrialist, began the construction of the Albright Art Gallery for the Academy. The building was designed by prominent local architect Edward Brodhead Green. It was originally intended to be used as the Fine Arts Pavilion for the Pan-American Exposition in 1901, but delays in its construction caused it to remain uncompleted until 1905.

If you want to view some amazing, beautiful three-dimensional art works by Silas Merlin, I would strongly recommend that you take a taxi over to his gallery in New Babbage, Second Life. You will not be disappointed.

The Spanish Baroque style architecture of the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, is quite striking. Contributing to its gradeur is the Locharbriggs red sandstone of which it is constructed. It is the most visited museum outside of London. Argyle Street, Glasgow, Scotland, 6 September 2013. (with thanks to Wikepedia)
