Bunbury Regional Art Galleries are situated in a distinctive pink former convent in the City centre only minutes from Bunbury’s thriving shopping and café strip.
Nestled at the base of Boulters Heights between the picturesque Leschenault Inlet and the Indian Ocean, Bunbury Regional Art Galleries is Western Australia’s largest regional gallery.
The Galleries show in any of its three gallery spaces, exhibitions through out the year by regional, national and international artists, designers and craft practitioners.
The Galleries run artist-in-residence programs of three months duration. Professional development for artists in practical and theory classes is run throughout the year in partnership with the South West Regional Arts Development and Indigenous Arts Development Offices. As a compliment to this program, an access exhibition space is also available to local artists, emerging artists, community organisations and schools.
Specific education, community and indigenous programs are also included in the exhibition schedule. The Galleries services also offer tailored programs to groups and organisations. Artist and curator’s talks offer further insight into the exhibitions on show.
The Galleries may be booked for events. Music also forms part of the lively entertainment performed at the galleries with exhibitions and the unique building forming a dramatic backdrop.
