Horsham Regional Art Gallery
Horsham Regional Art Gallery is located in an elegant 1930s Art Deco building which incorporates the Town Hall. Established in 1967, the gallery moved to its present location in 1983 as the result of a major bequest of paintings and works on paper from retired musician, Mack Jost.
The Handbury Gallery on the ground floor is the main temporary exhibition space and houses exhibitions ranging from historical to contemporary and occasionally social history displays. A photographic gallery displays exhibitions of contemporary photographic practices and works from the Gallery's extensive photography collection. A community gallery for the display of regional artists' work is located on the ground floor, linking the temporary exhibition spaces. Exhibitions in these galleries change every 5-6 weeks.
The Mack Jost Gallery on the first floor permanently displays a selection of works by Australian artists from the colonial period to present day including works by John Glover, Rupert Bunny, Max Meldrum and John Perceval.
The main focus for the Gallery's permanent collection is Australian photography covering images from the pictorialist era to contemporary photographs. The gallery also acquires works which relate to the Wimmera region, and works which complement the Mack Jost collection.
