In 1999, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery was relocated to the award winning Civic Centre complex, the symbolic heart of Wagga Wagga's central business district. Designed by Melbourne architectural firm Garner Davis, the Art Gallery includes a separate gallery specifically for the National Art Glass Collection.

In fact, the building is a drawcard in itself. See for yourself how its combinations of light, space, shape and design complement the Gallery's collections and exhibitions perfectly.

Main Gallery

  • Stars + Stripes: American Art of the 21st Century from the Goldberg Collection, exhibition 2016

The Main Gallery is renowned for its wide, open spaces and an impressive feature wall, almost eight metres in height, that showcases larger works.

When you walk into the Main Gallery you're greeted with ambience and open space. This inviting area is where we showcase visiting and in-house exhibitions. The lower floors of the main space can be divided to accommodate two or three separate exhibitions. The amazing feature wall, almost eight metres high, is perfect for large works and adds to the impressive vista when looking out from the mezzanine level.

  • Gregory Carosi: From There to Here, exhibition 2016

In the eastern point of the building, the Links Gallery's triangular shape and high ceiling provides a unique and challenging venue for artists.

The Links Gallery is located in the eastern point of the building and is a wonderful venue for established and emerging regional artists. Easy access to the Links Gallery is available from the ground floor entrance. High ceilings and the unusual triangular design of this Gallery combine to give an impression of space and intimacy at the same time.

  • Lorraine Tye, Guya-gu Marraanba Yinaa: One Woman Fish Net 2017 (detail)

The Point can be viewed from Morrow Street and we believe looks finest at dusk. Past site specific artists have included Wiradjuri artist Lorraine Tye presents Guya-gu Marraanba Yinaa: One Woman Fish Net, a 4.5-metre high woven structure in the form of a Wiradjuri fishing net, accompanied by a school of individually woven fish.

National Art Glass Gallery

  • Forget me not: Kristin McFarlane and Brenda Page, exhibition 2015

This contemporary design fittingly includes significant use of glass that fills it with natural light by day, and allows stunning illumination at night.

The combination of clever, contemporary design and the extensive use of glass fills the Glass Gallery with natural light. The reflective pool directly outside the windows helps create an impression of 'bringing the outside in' and adds to the effect of endless light and space. At night, the Glass Gallery is illuminated, allowing an after-hours view of the Collection from outside the building.

The upper floor features a changing selection from the National Art Glass Collection, while the lower floor showcases temporary exhibitions by renowned Australian glass artists.

Easy access for patrons with mobility issues enables movement from the street directly to the Glass Gallery and through to the Main Gallery.

Margaret Carnegie Gallery

  • Tony Ameneiro: Head Over Head, exhibition 2017

The Margaret Carnegie Gallery, home to the Margaret Carnegie Print Collection, also showcases a variety of exhibitions, both touring and in-house, with a strong focus on works on paper.

Named in honour of print collector Margaret Carnegie AO OAM, who was also one of Wagga Wagga Art Gallery's founding patrons, this Gallery showcases a variety of exhibitions, both touring and in-house. As a tribute to Margaret Carnegie's preferred medium, the Margaret Carnegie Gallery is often designated for works on paper. A blend of open and restricted spaces creates a welcoming atmosphere.
