Wunman Njinde / Welcome
Gippsland Art Gallery's permanent collection of artworks is one of the great cultural assets of the region.

Comprising over 4,000 items and valued at over $11 million, this significant collection documents the art of Gippsland and beyond. Since its establishment in 1965, the focus of the collection has been Gippsland and the natural environment.

Artworks range in materials from paintings, sculpture, photography, and printmaking, through to glass, ceramics, textiles, and woodwork.

The collection has particular strengths in works on paper, landscape and wildlife art, craft (1960-1990) and contemporary painting (1990-present).
