Horsham Regional Art Gallery
Horsham Regional Art Gallery is housed in a fine Art Deco building, refurbished and extended in recent years. We have four temporary exhibition spaces featuring changing exhibitions of contemporary and traditional art and photography.
Horsham is centrally located between the Grampians and Little Desert National Parks, and close to the world Mecca of rock climbing, Mt Arapiles. Horsham boasts a lively arts community, with one of the best community festivals, “Art is…”, held late March each year.
Description of collection:
The collection has two main focus areas: Australian art – 450 paintings, drawings and prints with the main holdings in the Mack Jost Collection, and photography – 800 works, early to contemporary. The Australian art collection includes a small collection of ceramics and sculpture. Another focus is works of regional significance. A newly acquired aspect of the collection is that of Australian Wildlife Art; mainly works on paper and centred around the Bill and Maureen Mann Collection.
Horsham Regional Art Gallery was one of the first Victorian public galleries to receive Accreditation from Museums Australia and the Australian Tourism Accreditation Association, in recognition of best industry practice and a high level of commitment to the future of the Gallery and its continual improvement.
