The Gippsland Art Gallery is situated at the Port of Sale, overlooking stunning waterways and parklands. Each year the gallery hosts around 30 exhibitions of local, national  and international significance, in addition to permanent collection displays. The gallery occupies the Wellington Centre together with the Sale Library, Visitor Information Centre and cafe, and is adjacent to The Wedge Performing Arts Centre.

The theme of the gallery is Gippsland and the natural environment. Visitors can experience a taste of Gippsland art and culture, in addition to exhibitions by some of Australia’s most admired artists. One of the key attractions is a dedicated showcase of works by environmental textile artist Annemieke Mein OAM.

The gallery has an active Friends group who enjoy discounts at the shop and invitations to special events. There are also membership groups for children (the Gallery Geckos), and local schools.

AWARDS

Every even year the gallery hosts the John Leslie Art Prize, a $20,000 acquisitive prize for Australian landscape painting which attracts a high calibre of artists working in Australia. The prize is named after the gallery’s patron, John Leslie OBE.
