June 2020 Re-opening
The staff and Management Committee of Warwick Art Gallery are pleased to share the news that we will be re-opening on Thursday the 18th of June. After 3 months of closure we are looking forward to presenting a re-shuffled program of exhibitions. Fortunately we have been able to retain all of the exhibitions that we missed during our closure.
To ensure the safety of our visitors and volunteers we will be staggering the re-opening of our spaces in three stages:
Stage 1 – Orange Wall Gallery and Reception – opening on Thursday 18th of June
Stage 2 – Main and Foyer Galleries – opening on Thursday 2nd of July
Stage 3 – Studio – opening on Tuesday 4th of August.
At all times we will be staying aware of social distancing requirements and we have a COVID19 Safety Plan here.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to unlocking the door and sharing more exciting art with you.
Warwick Art Gallery was officially opened on the 18th of February 1990. In 2012 the Gallery was extended to provide a workshop and storage space. In 2017 the Gallery expanded again into the former Visitor Information Centre next door to create the Orange Wall Gallery exhibition space and Gallery shop.
The Gallery's facilities support an exhibitions program that includes a mix of touring exhibitions and locally generated exhibitions. The Gallery is a Category A facility and a member of Queensland's regional gallery network and Museums Australia. We proudly present over 20 different exhibitions a year and entry is FREE.
In 2004 the Gallery was part of a committee that initiated a community project to breathe new life into the central business district following a distruptive period of streetscaping. The initiative was named Jumpers and Jazz in July. Now a significant community festival, Jumpers and Jazz in July is a major annual project for Warwick Art Gallery incorporating multiple textile (yarn bombing) art projects, exhibitions and workshops.
Through effective strategic planning the Warwick Art Gallery aims to create an environment in which artistic and cultural development will benefit the community.
ENTRY TO WARWICK ART GALLERY IS FREE
Open Tuesday to Saturday 10 am to 4 pm. Closed on Sundays, Mondays and public holidays.
