Bunbury Regional Art Galleries
The Bunbury Regional Art Galleries first opened on the 14th of February, St Valentines Day, 1987. Converted from the Sisters of Mercy convent, this building has been an iconic structure for Bunbury and the regional community since the first foundation stone was laid almost 100 years prior in 1897. With respect to this history, the building is heritage listed and original pieces of furniture etc are also featured for public enjoyment.
The Galleries present a diverse range of exhibitions from local, state and nation wide sources that reflect excellence in the visual arts and contribute to the cultural life of the South West region of Western Australia and its visitors.
The Galleries present around 22 major exhibitions per year as well as a number of smaller community based exhibitions. Around one third of the major exhibitions are curated in-house by the Galleries staff including annual exhibitions featuring local talent such as the South West Survey, Noongar Country, Bunbury Biennale, Iluka Visions and Christmas Shop. The Galleries are partially funded by The Art Gallery of Western Australia and The City of Bunbury.
Open Daily - 10am to 4pm
Admission is free. A gold coin donation welcome.
The Bunbury Regional Art Galleries are centrally located on the corner of Wittenoom and Prinsep Streets. The Galleries are pretty hard to miss - just look for the big, pink converted convent!
