Port Pirie Regional Art Gallery is located in the Port Pirie Cultural Precinct, adjacent to the silos and wharf area in the city of Port Pirie. The Gallery conducts a diverse program of exhibitions annually, with an emphasis on regional South Australian artists. It hosts national touring exhibitions from major Australian cultural institutions and develops exhibitions of topical and community interest. Port Pirie Regional Art Gallery was first established in 1992, exhibiting in the old baggage room of the closed passenger railway station in Port Pirie. The redevelopment of the railway station into the Regional Tourism and Arts Centre in 1994 included a dedicated A class art gallery.

Port Pirie Regional Art Gallery Inc is a not for profit organisation run by a Board of Management generously supported by Port Pirie Regional Council, Country Arts SA, Nyrstar, Southern Cross Austereo, Pisani Accountants and Business Advisors and Automatic Print.
