ArtGeo Gallery, based in the South West of Western Australia, hosts a dynamic program of temporary and collection based exhibitions. Situated in the heart of Busselton’s cultural precinct, it is known as a place where art and heritage meet. ArtGeo aims to create a warm and welcoming complex that becomes a destination of choice for locals and tourists alike.

The Gallery and its historically significant surrounds aim to present a stimulating program of events including artist talks, workshops and educational activities for the community, artists and visitors to the region.

Owned and managed by the City of Busselton, the ArtGeo Gallery is housed in an elegant neo-classical brick and tile pavilion, built for the Agricultural Bank of Western Australia in 1931 and converted to a gallery in 2008.

The City of Busselton art collection began in the 1960s, when philanthropist Claude Hotchin gifted the community a collection of paintings and drawings. The collection now holds more than 100 works including a significant number of woodblock prints by Japanese master print maker Hiroshi Tomihari.
