Horsham Regional Art Gallery Collection
February 10 @ 10:00 am - June 30 @ 5:00 pm| FREE Entry
This year we choose a new selection of artworks from our outstanding collection in our dedicated collection galleries. Join us as we present curated exhibitions built around three focal points: Australian Photography, The Wimmera and its Artists and The Mack Jost Collection of Australian Painting and Works on Paper.
From the collection’s inception, the evolution of Australian photographic practice has been a defining presence. Our photography collection includes key historical photographers such as Nicolas Caire, J. W. Lindt, Frank Hurley and Esther Baylis. Contemporary artists include Destiny Deacon, Janina Green, Pat Brassington, Polly Borland, Bill Henson, Polixeni Papapetrou, Tracey Moffatt, Jo Scicluna, Darren Sylvester and Daniel Crooks among others
The Gallery collects works by artists of the Wimmera region along with works containing this regional subject matter or connection to our place. Contemporary artworks include those by Anthony Pelchen, Martin King and Marion Borgelt. Renowned Australian artists including Nicholas Chevalier and Sidney Nolan were also inspired by the landscapes of the Wimmera.
Our collection of paintings and works on paper is in great measure the result of the generous gifts of Mr Mack Jost AM. The collection includes works by many significant Australian artists from colonial and modern periods, along with more recent acquisitions made through the Trust in line with Jost’s collecting principals.
The Horsham Regional Art Gallery Collection has been developing since 1972, and is funded through the Horsham Art Gallery Trust Fund.
