Newcastle Art Gallery
About Newcastle Art Gallery
The Newcastle Art Gallery began in 1957 and was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II. The gallery's current location houses over 1,000 works of art from various periods throughout history that are displayed for your viewing pleasure! The fine art collection at the Newcastle Art Gallery is one of Australia's finest, with over 7 thousand pieces from all periods and cultures. This invaluable cultural asset not only benefits locals but also visitors to our city who are able to see for themselves what makes us so great!
The City of Newcastle owns and operates a gallery that has been able to present dynamic exhibitions for both locals, as well as visitors from all over. The City of Newcastle continuously strives to promote art and culture in their community by presenting a range of exhibitions, events or programs. The collection continues on an upward trend with the help we get from our foundation, society members, and many other generous individuals who have donated their time or money towards this cause!
