Latrobe Regional Gallery (LRG) was established in 1971. Latrobe Regional Gallery is one of the largest public galleries in eastern Victoria, Australia, and is member of the Public Galleries Association of Victoria.
Housing seven gallery spaces and a sculpture courtyard, the gallery presents exhibitions and curated projects across contemporary art and design, experimental and interdisciplinary practices, curated collections of note, works by regional artists and national touring exhibitions.
Most of Latrobe Regional Gallerys spaces are fitted out to international museum standards, with archival storage facilities, hosting significant collections such as the Allan Aldous Collection (Asian Art), a substantial collection of handcrafted glass objects and perfume bottles, and a range of modernist, impressionist and recent post-war art.
A dynamic program of events, exhibition tours and artist talks provide insights into the exhibitions and collections. LRG provides art/educational workshops, with the Project Space, a ‘for hire’ gallery to enhance opportunities for emerging artists. Latrobe Regional Gallery also manages The Cbus Collection of Australian Art.
