About the Gallery

Since opening in Albury's former Town Hall in 1981, the Albury Regional Art Gallery has become one of the best regional galleries in Australia. The gallery is host to over 2000 works valued at more than $5 million – one of the largest fine art collections in the Murray/Riverina region.

The gallery is home to an important collection of works by renowned Australian artist Sir Russell Drysdale (1912–1981), a one-time Albury resident who was inspired by the landscapes and buildings of the Albury region to paint many of his most famous works.

The Gallery is also proud of the eclectic collection of works that make up the Daniel Gift, including a Tang dynasty ceramic horse and rider, Chinese ivory figurines, Tibetan gilt bronze sculptures and Ashanti gold weights from West Africa, as well as etchings by Francisco de Goya and prints by Chagall, Dufy, Manet, Signac and Renoir.

Two national contemporary art awards – the Albury Art Prize and the biennial National Photography Prize – are sponsored by the Gallery. The Albury Art Prize, one of Australia’s oldest art prizes, offers Australian artists the opportunity to benefit from an international residency. The $20,000 National Photography Prize provides Australian narrative photographers with the opportunity to have one of their works featured in a collection of national significance.

Photographic artist Tracey Moffatt's well-known 1989 narrative series Something more was commissioned by the Albury Regional Art Gallery. As Artist-in-Residence, Tracey Moffatt –internationally one of Australia’s most famous and admired artists – produced the series in Albury, with local people as cast and crew. The gallery holds an artist’s proof set of the nine images together with other examples of a number of series executed by Moffatt.
