Spending some time at an art gallery or wandering through sculptures in a park can take us away from our day to day life. It can tap into feelings and ideas that we might normally not be aware of.

We can be amazed at the artistry that has gone into the design and making of the art work. We can enjoy the pure sight of seeing something beautiful. Our visual sense can be stimulated as we look from one art work to another.

We can be transported to far away places by looking at art work from afar. We can gain new insight into our own country as we view art from close by. We can begin to be aware of different ways of seeing, different ways of being and different ways of understanding. We can see familiar sights, be reminded of things we've seen before at another time and place.

We can be stimulated to go away and be creative, to make our own art, to find a way to let out our own feelings and thoughts in a way that will draw others in. We can be reminded of our own talents and abilities. We can be inspired to discover or re-discover our inner artist.

A day at the gallery can leave us calm and inspired. It can take us into a quiet place where we can reflect and take ourselves away from our day to day life, away from our challenges for a little while and into a new world of visual delight.
