We frequent this regional gallery and have always been greatly pleased with our experience. We recently viewed the Salon des Refusés which was very engaging and showcased the works of contemporary Australians (some local). We love the open space, the accessibility to the works and the range of exhibitions offered each year. For two years this gallery hosted the Archibald,... More

Quite unordinary gallery - there was no artwork on the walls. Perhaps the new exhibit still in preparation, however we never tried to visit again.

This was a real surprise visit, not only the works on display, which are simply amazing, but the space itself is one of the better galleries in which to contemplate and view the exhibits from a tremendously talented group of artists. A highly recommended and worthwhile visit. No cafe facilities available though!

A well planned and family friendly display of many local artists, with beautiful jewellery, books and cards for sale as well.

Unfortunately missed the Archie's exhibition this year but caught the beach one. Some good stuff but a lot more political than we were expecting.

Maybe we have been spoiled by the free galleries we have been to in the cities, but having just spent $4pp entry to see the current 'On The Beach' exhibition, it seemed very poor value. Staff were not welcoming or well informed and the exhibition is very tiny. No cameras allowed, so if you wanted a picture for memory of... More

A pretty drive to this gallery, my third visit. The special exhibition had a theme of The Beach. Artworks were displayed to advantage. One of my favourite things at this gallery is the display of works, to the theme, by local school children. Such a delight. Don't miss the rose garden next door.

I recently visited the gallery for the On The Beach exhibition - lots of iconic Australian works as well as lesser known ones, all on the beach theme. The gallery itself is medium sized with a good gift selection including locally made items (candles, soaps, cards etc) at the entrance and there is a rose garden right next door, so... More

A group of friends had been to Ballarat Art Gallery recently to see the Archibald Prize Entries Exhibition and was interested to see the "Rejects" exhibited. They were just lovely and well worthy of being judged in the original group in our opinion. The gallery was small but beautifully displayed and very reasonably priced. The gallery cafe didn't open till... More

We popped by to see the Archibald Prize overflow entries and they are well hung in this small and airy regional gallery. A friendly place to stop in, for the art of the moment.
