Maitland Regional Art Gallery
MRAG offers in total, eleven exhibition spaces in three distinct wings across two levels of the art gallery.
MRAG accessibility features include a lift, interior and exterior wheelchair access ramps and a sensory garden. One wing of the building is dedicated to children and education: the Art Factory fosters appreciation to the arts for the specific audience of children, schools, family groups and youth.
Bound by an eight – ten week rotating exhibition program staggered across the eleven exhibition spaces, MRAG presents appropriate activities for visitors across all demographics. Exhibition openings, lectures, workshops, book launches, concerts, art talks, family programs and all means of exhibition activities ensure.

The café Seraphine caters to a large number of patrons Tuesday-Sunday 8am-4.30pm as well as for functions in and outside normal art gallery hours.
The menu at Séraphine changes with the seasons, accentuating simple styled good food with fresh seasonal produce.
