Located in the heart of Geraldton, the Geraldton Regional Art Gallery opened on 6th August 1984 and is housed in the former Town Hall which operated from 1907 to 1964.
Renovations completed in 1984 saw the Geraldton Regional Art Gallery become the first regional ‘A’ class venue in Western Australia and in 1997 the building was listed on the State Register of Heritage Places in Western Australia.
The Geraldton Regional Art Gallery is jointly funded and operated by the City of Geraldton-Greenough and the Art Gallery of Western Australia. The Gallery houses and cares for the City of Geraldton-Greenough Art Collection which is comprised of over 210 artworks, principally paintings and works on paper.
The City Collection was initiated in 1949 with a bequest of 44 artworks to the then Town of Geraldton by Western Australian philanthropist, the late Sir Claude Hotchin. The collection today boasts works by local and West Australian contemporary artists as well as historically significant works by Norman Lindsay, Rolf Harris, Robert Juniper, Howard Taylor, Hans Heysen, Elizabeth Durack and more.
The Gallery’s “A” classification allows for an annual schedule of some 25 exhibitions of the highest calibre accessed from local, state, national and international sources.
The Gallery aims to meet the artistic and cultural needs of Geraldton-Greenough and Mid West residents as well as state, national and international visitors.
The Gallery conducts a variety of education and workshop programs, plus outreach educational and community services across the city and region.
The Gallery hours are: Tuesday to Saturday 10am – 4pm
Sunday and Public Holidays 1pm – 4pm.
