A:27 Sixth St, Murray Bridge SA 5253
Murray Bridge Regional Gallery is set in the heart of the town’s arts precinct, located just 45 minutes from Adelaide, on beautiful Ngarrindjeri country near the banks of the majestic Murray River.
Celebrating its 21st anniversary in 2022, the gallery was originally established by dedicated community members, and operations were soon embraced by Rural City of Murray Bridge. In 2010, Murray Bridge hosted the South Australian Government’s Regional Centre of Culture program, which supported a major redevelopment that transformed the historic Town Hall into a versatile cultural venue for visual and performing arts.
Acclaimed as one of the premier regional galleries in the state, it brings enriching and adventurous contemporary arts experiences to the region, and showcases local arts practices across the Murraylands and surrounds. Culturally and conceptually diverse projects range from seasoned to experimental artforms, by leading and emergent artists, as well recreational makers and young people.
Murray Bridge Regional Gallery is often the exclusive South Australian venue for major touring exhibitions, and enjoys dynamic partnerships with significant state-wide festivals and national cultural institutions. The gallery is also a great place to embark on a tour of the region’s public art, featuring murals, sculptures and integrated artworks, which highlight the city’s Ngarrindjeri significance, historical richness, multicultural nature and environmental qualities.
Annually, the gallery co-hosts Murray Bridge Fringe and presents Sixth Street MAKERS MARKET, brimming with diverse local and South Australian handcrafts, and Sixth Street ART FEST, offering a bevy of free creative workshops. The public program also offers craft workshops, artist talks and tours.
The Gallery Shop features a range by leading contemporary Australian makers, including Ngarrindjeri weaving, paintings, sculptures, original prints, glassware, ceramics, jewellery, handprinted teatowels and greeting cards. Many of the makers repurpose materials for their work, in a spirit of sustainability.
