The Bega Valley Regional Gallery is a publicly funded art gallery and cultural facility located in the town centre of Bega in south eastern New South WalesAustralia. The gallery showcases contemporary Australian visual culture with up to ten exhibitions annually. In 2015 the gallery expands its footprint as the cultural outpost on Australia's WILDERNESS COAST and will launch two project spaces within new Bega Valley Shire Council community developments, the newly opened Commemorative Civic Centre in Bega and a community centre and library
Bega Valley Regional Gallery is the only publicly funded art gallery in South Eastern New South Wales with its closest neighbours being Wagga Wagga Regional Gallery - The National Art Glass Gallery to the west and the Shoalhaven City Arts Centre to the north.
The gallery currently employs a part-time curator and access & learning facilitator. As of early 2015 the gallery staff and council are writing a 5-year strategic plan for the gallery which will include strong recommendations to increase the current positions to full-time and to create the position of Director for the gallery. Despite these limitations, the gallery delivers up to 40 public programs and outreach activities within the local government and regional area per year, including film nights, traditional drawing, printmaking and painting workshops as well as new media and film based workshops, curatorial lectures, visiting artist and academic lectures and professional development seminars for artists. The gallery aligns with council's Community Strategic Plan and develops activities along its guiding principles of Equity, Access and Participation.
