Amongst the landscape and natural attractions of the Wimmera-Mallee and Grampians, Horsham offers visitors great coffee, food and wine options, as well as the Horsham Regional Art Gallery and other arts, cultural and recreational options. The gallery continues to surprise its first time (and repeat) visitors with the quality of its rotating displays from the permanent collection and its schedule of self-curated and touring exhibitions.
The permanent collection has focused on Australian photography since its inception in the early 1970s and is of national significance. This is accompanied by works showcasing the Wimmera and the Mack Jost Collection of paintings and works on paper.
New exhibitions are programmed throughout the year, so there is always something new to see. In 2021 the gallery is curating an exhibition exploring contemporary still life with 12 artists. This will include paintings by Sam Leach, Michael Zavros and Juan Ford, sculpture by Jud Wimhurst and photography by Jane Burton. Touring exhibitions in 2021 include The Dressmaker costumes (filmed locally) and Indigenous art from the National Gallery of Australia.
Horsham Regional Art Gallery presents Australian art in an informal and friendly environment.Children are always welcome and free activities are available.
