The Art Gallery of Ballarat is not just Australia's oldest regional gallery but one of its most exciting. Located in the heart of Ballarat's central heritage precinct, the Gallery boasts a stunning collection of Australian art. The Gallery presents a range of exhibitions from cutting edge contemporary art to themed shows drawn from the Gallery's extensive collection, and special interest ticketed shows. It is a focus for Ballarat's lively arts scene, situated in the heart of Ballarat's central area, which boasts great cafes and restaurants, book and antique shops and commercial galleries. The Gallery's magnificent collection of Australian paintings, sculpture, ceramics and works on paper gives visitors the opportunity to experience key moments in the history of Australian art, with important representative works from colonial to contemporary periods. The heritage-listed Gallery building has evolved to accommodate the expanding collection and now includes a range of spaces from grand and elegant nineteenth century rooms to stunning contemporary additions. The shop stocks works by local artists and craftspeople as well as art books, souvenirs, gifts and toys. The Gallery is fully accessible for people with disabilities....
