Making connections through art: Burra Regional Art Gallery fosters excellence in the arts, supports the work of regional and young artists and promotes community education in the arts.
A beautiful building with excellent spaces for showing work from the small and intimate to the huge and confronting, including a small retail shop of affordable high quality works and Artist Cards. The Gallery provides a venue for artists to exhibit their works in group and solo exhibitions, hosts major touring exhibitions, conducts competitions and invites prominent artists to conduct master classes and workshops.
Situated within the old Telegraph and Post Office building from which J McDouall Stuart sent his message in Dec 1862, to inform the SA authorities that he had successfully crossed Australia. The S.T. Gill room has four major works by that artist of Burra in 1847 and 1850.
