Newcastle Art Gallery to temporarily close from 9-27 May

05 May 2016

Newcastle Art Gallery will be temporarily closed to the public from Monday 9 May until 5:30pm Friday 27 May 2016.
In addition to installing a 'whole of Gallery' exhibition titled BLACK WHITE & RESTIVE, necessary internal building maintenance will be undertaken. The building maintenance works on the ground floor require scaffolding and enclosures to be erected that impact on public safety. For these reasons the decision has been made to close the Gallery.
We apologise for any inconvenience the temporary closure may cause.
During the closure period the Art Gallery will continue to engage with the public through an outdoor community art project held on the front lawn Tuesday-Sunday. More details on this project will soon be available on the Gallery's website,
The Gallery invites the community to join us to celebrate the opening of BLACK WHITE & RESTIVE: Cross-cultural initiatives in Australian contemporary art on Friday 27 May 2016 at 5:30pm. This exhibition explores engagements between Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists and will feature works of art from Newcastle Art Gallery's comprehensive collection and major loans from across Australia.
