Regional Gallery features 706m² of exhibition space incorporating
four galleries and a space devoted to the moving image.
The main space is devoted to large touring and in-house
curated exhibitions, a Project Space for smaller touring
exhibitions and solo shows, the Regional Art Space devoted
to regional artists and a permanent Children’s
Gallery. In 2007 the Gallery was the beneficiary of a generous gift from the Armati Family including Michael Riley's celebrated Cloud series of photographs. In perpetuity the Gallery will hitherto be known as Dubbo Regional Gallery - The Armati Bequest.
Dubbo Regional Gallery (DRG) was established in 1989
after many years of lobbying and planning by the Dubbo
community. Housed in refurbished buildings in Darling
Street Dubbo, DRG soon grew to become an integral part
of the region through its innovative exhibitions, collection,
education and outreach programs. The Gallery’s
collection features works acquired from Dubbo Art & Craft
Society Biennial exhibitions, generous donations and
bequests, and active collecting. The Gallery specialises
in the Animal in Art theme, collecting works in a broad
range of media and styles by artists from all areas.
The collection includes work by artists such as Arthur
Boyd, John Olsen, David Noonan, Louise Weaver, Heather
B Swann, Peggy Napangardi Jones and George W. Lambert.
