Benalla Art Gallery has become a respected and dynamic place of visual art since it opened in1975. It hosts regular exhibitions of contemporary and traditional art by nationally recognised artists and presents a public program of workshops, talks and events to accompany the shows.
The gallery's collection includes painting, printmaking, works on paper, photography, textiles, ceramics, sculpture and decorative arts spanning three centuries of Australian art. Its Ledger Collection presents Australian art from the 19th and early 20th centuries - focusing on the colonial and impressionist periods.
Situated in a striking architecturally-designed building on the shore of Lake Benalla, the gallery has an excellent cafe/restaurant and presents a picturesque location for a chat and a meal after a visit. More information at www.benallaartgallery.com.au
