Albury Regional Art Gallery

pdf movie slideshow

The Albury Regional Art Gallery has been located in the heritage listed former Albury Council Chambers building (circa 1900) since 1981 and is the largest public arts institution in the region. The gallery currently exhibits a diverse array of national touring, locally curated exhibitions and works from its own collection of over 2000 photographs, paintings, prints and drawings that are also housed within the building.

In 2010 Brewster Hjorth Architects were engaged to re-visit the Albury Queen Elizabeth II Square Masterplan in particular the Civic component of the Albury Art Gallery facility which resulted in the preparation of a detailed Needs Analysis document describing their objectives and expectations for upgrades and extensions.  The building’s frontage to Dean Street nestled between adjoining heritage buildings within an “open space” setting of the Queen Elizabeth II Square.


Gallery
The new Regional Gallery of 2400m2 is a significant extension to the existing gallery and will provide refurbished services, modern display areas and accessibility. The new facility will have a dynamic address to Dean Street in Albury and long term maintain the gallery’s status as the regional leader in dynamic and world class exhibitions.

The new gallery facilities include a two storey atrium entry and display area, reception, public workrooms, gallery shop, purpose built back-of-house areas, a restaurant, extensive multipurpose gallery spaces to accept touring and national exhibitions and an art by accident space to further encourage community involvement.


Environmentally Sustainable Design
The gallery materials have been chosen to minimise the embodied energy and waste.  Water, energy and indoor environmental quality are all areas in which the servicing is being specialised by way of displacement air-conditioning, natural lighting where permissible, motion sensors, daylighting sensors, LED lighting, electrical sub-metering and rated fixtures.
