About the Gallery
Griffith Regional Art Gallery was officially opened on September 9, 1983. The gallery is centrally located in the main shopping centre, and occupies a leased space in the eastern wing of the significant 1939 Art Deco War Memorial Building. The gallery, although small, has a lovely sense of space due to the 4.2 metre high ceilings and natural timber floors of cypress and tallowwood. The Gallery has a single exhibition space which shows a variety of touring exhibitions, communtiy exhibitions, exhibitions featuring our Couture Collection or National Contemporary Jewellery Collection and regional artists. The Gallery also coordinates two other exhibition spaces within Griffith at Griffith Regional Theatre and Griffith City Council which generally feature work by local artists and are two spaces that are worth a look. The Gallery's annual public program offers a diverse range of activities for littlie right up to the curious adult or professional artist which are aimed to educate and stimulate.
