Gippsland Regional Art Gallery


The Gippsland Art Gallery was established in 1965 as the Sale Regional Arts Centre above the City Library in MacAlister Street, Sale.

The Gallery was the first public art venue to open east of Melbourne. A Victorian State Government Grant enabled construction of the Gallery, which was subsequently run by a Committee of Management. The Gallery was staffed entirely by volunteers until its first Director, Gwen Webb was appointed in 1976. It continued to operate as a community gallery until 1994, when it came under the management of the newly formed Wellington Shire Council. The Gallery relocated into the Port of Sale Civic Centre, where it reopened in 1995.

Today the Gippsland Art Gallery is a thriving arts hub, hosting artists and exhibitions of national and international significance. The Gallery features three interior exhibition spaces and a sculpture courtyard. The Gallery also houses a significant art reference library, which is open to the public by appointment. Since its establishment in 1965, the focus of the Collection has been Gippsland and the natural environment. Works range in materials from paintings, sculpture, and prints, through to glass, ceramics, and textiles. A selection of works is on display at any one time, while other works in storage can be viewed by appointment.
