Inspired by the far-reaching plains of the Moree region, Moree Plains Gallery’s goal is to widen horizons and expand people’s cultural vision. The gallery is committed to supporting the work of contemporary Australian artists, especially Aboriginal artists. It is one of the few regional galleries that is not owned and run by local government but the gallery does receive financial support from Moree Plains Shire Council, which owns the 1911 Edwardian-style gallery building.

The collection


The gallery has an extensive Aboriginal art collection. This has been made possible through significant gifts from the late Ann Lewis as well as Robert Bleakley, Christopher Hodges and Helen Eager.

Exhibition highlights


The gallery's annual program includes a diverse array of touring exhibitions and displays of works from the permanent collection. Upcoming highlights include a curated exhibition of the Ann Lewis Collection and self curated exhibitions by artists from north-west New South Wales.
