Port Pirie Regional Gallery acknowledges the Nukunu people who are the traditional custodians of the land we reside on. We also pay respects to Elders both past and present of the Nukunu nation and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people present.
Port Pirie Regional Art Gallery is located in the Port Pirie Cultural Precinct, in the Port Pirie Regional Tourism & Arts Centre, adjacent to the silos and wharf area in the city of Port Pirie.
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.
Bringing art to the people and people to the arts.
Port Pirie Regional Gallery is the principal provider of visual arts and crafts in the Port Pirie and the Southern Flinders Ranges. We deliver opportunities for the people of the Southern Flinders region to value and understand the importance of art and culture in our community.
Pirie Regional Art Gallery aims to represent the diversity in the culture, race and gender identity in Port Pirie and the Southern Flinders Ranges. The Australia Council’s Cultural Engagement Framework (CEF) identifies a number of priority areas which our Gallery & Cultural Arts is currently focused on, recognising the intersections between these groups. The current CEF priority areas are:
- First Nations peoples
- Children and young people
- Cultural diversity
- Older people
- People with disability
- Regional and remote Australia
