About

Welcome to Goulburn Regional Art Gallery. We are the region's hub for presenting, exhibiting and collecting contemporary art. Our program is big, bold and full of ideas that will provoke conversation and connection to the work of the artists we work with.

We are a cultural facility of Goulburn Mulwaree Council. We are open six days a week with exhibitions that present what is happening now in Australian contemporary art across two gallery spaces. Our exhibitions inspire our education and outreach initiatives which engage everyone from littlies under five years old to senior members of our community.  We run programs everyday both at the Gallery and on the road. We actively acquire works for our permanent collection and commission new work for our public art program.

We are located at the Civic Centre on Bourke Street, but our accesible entrance is via Church Street. Admission is always free and the Gallery Store is fully stocked with a carefully curated selection of artisan items, as well as our Gallery tote bags and catalogues.

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional owners of these lands and custodians of country.

Everything we do is for our artists and for our community. We want to make the arts part of daily life in Goulburn and welcome you to join our conversation.

Gallery 2 - Local artists all the time

 

Local artists are supported at the Gallery every day. Gallery 2 is a dedicated space that exhibits the work of our local artists 100% of the time. For this program, we define local as residing within a 120km radius of Goulburn CBD. Submissions for 2023 will open in April 2022.

We engage local artists to facilitate workshops and programs too. If you would like to be considered for a workshop, send over your CV and area of practice. You must hold public liability insurance and have some prior experience.

Our partners

We are inspired by the creatives around us which is why we have our Collection on permanent display at the Hume Conservatorium, across various Council sites and at Workspace 2580 on Clinton Street.

Both the Hume Conservatorium and The Lieder Theatre offer our members a 10% discount on tickets. 

Each year, we support a graduating artist from the School of Art and Design, ANU through the Emerging Artist Support Scheme. 

We have worked with other organisations to present new programs and provide greater support for artists, such as Carriageworks, Museums & Galleries of NSW and Southern Tablelands Arts.
