Ipswich Art Gallery is a visual arts and social history museum presenting a dynamic program of exhibitions and heritage displays with complementary workshops, performances and an extensive program for children and families.
The Gallery is proudly the first in Australia to encompass a permanent, interactive Children’s Gallery. Guided by philosophical principles that encourage spontaneous, creative play, the Children’s Gallery offers exciting programs and activities for early childhood, lower primary and upper primary age ranges.
Beginning in 1951 with the acquisition of 14 paintings, the Ipswich Art Gallery Collection has grown to more than 2,000 artworks and objects of historical significance. The Collection presently ranges from humble ephemera to important works by Australia’s most celebrated artists, reflecting in its breadth the region’s rich cultural and social heritage.
