Gippsland Art Gallery
The Gippsland Art Gallery first opened in 1965 and is one of regional Victoria’s leading public galleries. Each year the gallery hosts exhibitions of contemporary, modern and historical art and culture, featuring works by local, national and international artists. 

In July 2015 the Gallery moved from the Port of Sale Civic Centre to the Port of Sale Business Centre, 64-66 Foster Street, Sale as a temporary measure while the old Port of Sale Civic Centre is redeveloped. The new Port development will include an Art Gallery, Library and Information Centre services and is due to be completed by July 2017.

The Gippsland Art Gallery owns over 1300 artworks, with the main theme being environment and works relating to Gippsland.

The Maffra Exhibition Space is also run by the Gippsland Art Gallery and displays artworks with a focus on Gippsland based artists.


Permanent Collection
The Gippsland Art Gallery’s Permanent Collection is one of the great cultural assets of the region. Comprising over 1300 items, the Collection tells the story of art in Gippsland from pre-colonisation to today.

Since its establishment in 1965, the focus of the Collection has been Gippsland and the natural environment. Works in the Collection are from both national and international artists, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, works on paper (drawings and prints), photographs, textiles, metalwork, woodwork, and indigenous and tribal art.

The Gallery’s collection grows each year through purchases and donations. Works from our collection are regularly on display at the Gallery.
