Our Collection

The Gallery collects works in three main areas:

  • Australian Naïve Art.
  • Australian prints and drawings from the 1970s onwards.
  • Works of art that relate to the Swan Hill region.

The collection was started in 1963 with the acquisition of a drawing by Australian artist Noel Counihan.  As more works were acquired, they were housed and displayed on the Paddlesteamer Gem and later the barge Vega under the Pioneer Settlement Authority.  Our current purpose-built Gallery was opened in 1987.

Today the Gallery and its collection of over 400 works is under the management of Swan Hill Rural City Council.
