Established in 1965, Gippsland Art Gallery plays a vital role in the arts and culture of the region.
The Gippsland Art Gallery is situated at the Port of Sale, overlooking stunning waterways and parkland. Every year the Gallery hosts around thirty exhibitions of local, national and international significance, in addition to ongoing and evolving displays of the permanent collection.
Housed in the Wellington Centre together with the Sale Library and Visitor Information Centre, there is always plenty to see and do.
Features of the Gallery include access to the art reference library, Dock 70 Cafe, Gallery Shop and a dedicated showcase for the celebrated Sale-based textile artist Annemieke Mein OAM.
Gippsland Art Gallery’s permanent collection of artworks is one of the great cultural assets of the region. Since its establishment in 1965, the focus of the Collection has been Gippsland and the natural environment.
The Gippsland Art Gallery currently owns over 1,750 objects, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, works on paper, photographs, textiles, metalwork, woodwork, and indigenous and tribal art. A selection of collection works are on display at any one time, while other works in storage can be viewed by appointment.
