regional Western Australia
The Art Gallery of Western Australia is the custodian of the State Art Collection. Through a program of exhibitions and interpretative programs it aims to increase the knowledge and appreciation of the arts of Australia and beyond for the enjoyment and the cultural, artistic, educational and intellectual enrichment of the people of Western Australia, including regional WA.
To facilitate regional access to the visual arts the Art Gallery of Western Australia collaborates with a variety of organisations and individuals. Our commitment is particularly evident through the Gallery’s support of the Bunbury Regional Art Galleries and Geraldton Regional Art Gallery. The two galleries are housed in heritage buildings that were developed and now maintained by the Cities of Geraldton-Greenough and Bunbury. In conjunction with both cities, the Art Gallery of Western Australia provides funding, the provision of staff time and expertise, and cross promotional opportunities that contribute significantly to the Geraldton Regional Art Gallery and Bunbury Regional Art Galleries being the premier regional galleries in Western Australia.
