Goulburn Regional Art Gallery
Goulburn Regional Art Gallery is located in Goulburn’s bustling CBD. When visiting the Gallery, you’ll see what artists are making now, and be challenged by the ideas of today. The Gallery presents exhibitions from living Australian and international artists, across three exhibition spaces. The main space heroes new work, Gallery 2 is dedicated to local artists and The Window presents works from the permanent collection. It hosts talks, panels, a year-round learning program for young people and an outreach program for the rural and remote community.
The Gallery Store has a local and sustainable focus with a range of jewellery, ceramics, glass, candles, cards and notebooks available.
Our permanent collection holds over 505 works. The collection is also a diverse and rich blueprint of contemporary artistic practices that have been connected to the Gallery’s exhibition program in some way. It spans textiles, video, ceramics, painting, works on paper and includes works by Ben Quilty, Alex Seton, Katthy Cavaliere, Jennifer Kenmarre Martiniello, Jasper Knight and Sharon Adamson. In November 2020, the Gallery’s Permanent Collection was deemed of National Significance.
From 2020, the Gallery awards The Good Initiative, an ongoing $20,000 investment in artists and their work. This initiative has been made possible by an ongoing pledge from an individual who makes an extraordinary, ongoing commitment to our Gallery.
Alternating with The Good Initiative, The Goulburn Art Award is held for local artists and awards prizes for the overall winner, the People’s choice and the Young Artist Award. A guest judge is invited each year.
Admission to the Gallery is free. Goulburn Regional Art Gallery celebrates 40 years in 2022.
