Newcastle Art Gallery, Australia’s first purpose-built regional gallery, was officially opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Friday 11 March 1977. Applauded as a model for medium sized galleries with its innovative floor plan and hanging system, even in its infancy critics lamented the lack of storage space. The building is also an important example of early 1970s architecture with its geometric forms and brutalist aesthetic.

Today the gallery has in its collection over 5000 works of art and can display only a small percentage of its renowned collection. In 2004 Newcastle City Council and the community endorsed a Master Plan for the gallery’s redevelopment. The plans for the gallery’s redevelopment will ensure that the Gallery continues in the spirit of innovation that saw it begin in 1977.
