Established in 1886, the Warrnambool Art Gallery offers a diverse collection of artworks, from elegant European salon paintings to the Avant-garde modernism of the Angry Penguins.
Artworks range from the romanticised colonial landscapes of Eugene Von Guerard and Louise Buvelot, to contemporary Australian printmaking by Juan Davila, Barbara Hanrahan and Ray Arnold.
The gallery's three temporary exhibition spaces present a diverse program incorporating leading Australian art practitioners and lessor known artists waiting to be discovered. The gallery continues to attract major exhibitions rarely seen outside of metropolitan areas, while at the same time actively encouraging and supporting Southwest Victorian artists.
Facing Warrnambool's Civic Green, the gallery is housed in an inviting, purpose-built museum that opened in 1986. All exhibition areas are on one level with easy access from the street. Free all-day car parking is available onsite.
