Art Gallery of WA

Perth Cultural Centre, Roe St, Perth / Yandilup

Through the Collection, our associated programs, and stimulating exhibitions, Gallery visitors are offered unique and exciting experiences of historic and contemporary Australian artists, as well as the art of the world.

We place particular emphasis on the arts of Australia, and due to our geographic position, the Indian Ocean Rim. Our proximity and access to many of the most exciting cultures of the world adds immeasurably to programs, exhibitions, collections and events at the State Art Gallery. Visit our Gallery and watch this site as we build for the future.
