Spending time in an art gallery is one of the happiest moments for me. But, I didn’t get such a chance until last week my visit to Dhoby Ghaut for some another reason. After my tasks done, I spent my time walking around the area with my son. While he was having a nap I visited the Visual Arts Centre which is an exhibition gallery located near the Dhoby Ghaut Green. If you are looking for things to in Dhoby Ghaut,Singapore,this Visual Arts Centre can be a place to unwind from your tired mind.

The Visual Arts Centre is a glass house gallery which is located in the hearts of Dhoby Ghaut making it a place to spend time among breathtaking arts.
Other than the exhibition venue, you can also find art courses and trial sessions from the Visual Arts Centre. On the day we visited there, there was an exhibition going on and I could experience the moments among the beautiful paintings.

There are exhibits which feature the beautiful buildings of Singapore such as shop houses.These exhibits highlight the historical information of Singapore.

It is so true..
I think the balloon is a chicken delivery mechanism. Or, does it celebrate the chicken?
I also confused.Then I saw blood in chicken.The balloon is like a birthday party balloon.So,I tried connecting celebrations and chicken. 🙂
I always find places like that interesting I could spend the day there 🙂
yes,really peaceful and interesting.
