Mudgee Arts Precinct
Mudgee Arts Precinct opened in November 2021 and is now the Mid-Western Region’s cultural home, delivering an exhibition program that features exhibitions of artistic excellence from our community and beyond. Shared with the award-winning Mudgee Region Tourism, the precinct is already a starting point for the many tourists that come to the region, whilst the gallery space is enjoyed by visitors and the local community alike.
The Mid-Western Regional Council received funding from Create NSW and the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund for the construction of a purpose-built art gallery to be based in Mudgee. Combined with additional funding from the Mid-Western Regional Council, the recently opened $8.1 million facility delivers an arts and cultural program that is enjoyed by the residents of the local community as well as the 700,000 annual visitors to the region.
Following a competitive tender process, BKA Architecture won the tender to build the gallery which saw the refurbishment and expansion of the existing Victorian Cudgegong Chambers which was then combined with a brand new, state-of-the-art facility that comprises the tourism hub, the main exhibiting gallery, a café plus additional community spaces and resources that will be open by the end of 2022.
The gallery is open 9am – 5pm seven days a week and individual tours of the current exhibition can be booked by appointment.
