The Beginnings

14 January – 19 February 2017 | Gallery1

CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF THE WANGARATTA ART GALLERY

In 1987 Wangaratta community groups, individuals and local council helped establish the beginnings of the Wangaratta Exhibitions Gallery. This exhibition reflects upon the development and success of a venue which over the duration of 30 years has become a highly regarded Regional Public Gallery that holds a significant collection. A feature of the exhibition will be the inclusion of recent acquisitions to the Wangaratta Art Gallery Collection acquired throughout 2014-2016.
