VISITING ART GALLERIES can be a rewarding experience. It can also be exhausting, as you trudge around room after room taking everything in until you’re overwhelmed by visual stimulation.
My approach is to glance around each room, and then only look at the paintings or sculptures that catch my eye. Rather than spending 20 seconds on each artwork in the room, I’ll spend several minutes just looking at one piece.
I may miss a lot that way, but I also leave the gallery feeling enriched rather than drained.
