Maitland Regional Art Gallery
Maitland Regional Art Gallery now boasts a stunning new space with state of the art facilities. Visitors are able to enjoy regularly changing exhibition of high quality Australian and international art.
The program includes touring exhibitions, a flourishing art workshop and other events, such as floor talks and concerts.
The MRAG collection of contemporary Australian paintings and prints began with the Maitland Art Prize in the 1950's and was enriched over the years through generous gifts. The last two years have brought significant increase in donations, with over 600 works of art being acquired by the art gallery, including important 20th century paintings and many works on paper.
With a change in location, gallery extensions and the appointment of Joe Eisenberg as Director-MRAG now has now found a focus of collecting works on paper to compliment the significant paintings already held in its ever growing collection.
