Burnie Regional Art Gallery

The ground floor of the Burnie Arts & Function Centre was originally destined to be a car park but happily an active and vocal arts-loving community, combined with a visionary Burnie City Council, lead to the creation of the Burnie Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) in 1978.

With the help of Commonwealth, State and local government funding, the Burnie Regional Art Gallery became the third purpose-built public art gallery in Tasmania.

BRAG’s national reputation is built on the strength of its exceptional print collection acquired through the biennial Burnie Print Prize, and its promotion and support of the art of printmaking.

The Gallery 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.
