Burnie Regional Art Gallery

Our purpose is to celebrate, promote and exhibit the very best of art, craft and design in northwest Tasmania

About

Welcome to Burnie Regional Art Gallery!

With an icy blue Bass Strait on our doorstep, Cradle Mountain looming behind and row after row of hazy grey mountains to the east and west, this is a place to breathe deeply, to think and rest your mind. The wind blows away cobwebs as waves hurtle against red rocky coastlines and sunlight dances on the water. Burnie is a little gem of a city on the northwest coast of Tasmania with a thriving arts community.

Situated in the city centre, the Burnie Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) is operated and maintained by the Burnie City Council and is supported by our corporate partners, the Friends of Burnie Regional Art Gallery and assisted through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts. A combination of good management by Council and the continued generosity and commitment of the community has resulted in a gallery of longevity and purpose. As a public art gallery, we do three main things: manage the art collection, present exhibitions and, together with the other members of the downtown precinct, provide the cultural heartbeat of the City.

Burnie Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) presents an extensive annual exhibition program that includes touring and special exhibitions, school and community programs and curated exhibitions from the permanent collection. It is supported by floor talks, openings, workshops and other events throughout the year. BRAG’s national reputation is built is on the strength of its exceptional print collection acquired through the biennial Burnie Print Prize, and its promotion and support of printmaking.

Admission is free for most exhibitions and fees apply for special exhibitions only. Please check our facebook page for the latest details.

BRAG is kindly supported by the Friends of the Burnie Regional Gallery.
