Tasmania's North West

Established in 1978, this substantial regional gallery serves the north-west and west coasts of Tasmania. In its two largest exhibition spaces, the gallery presents a vibrant and varied exhibitions program. Exhibitions are developed from collected works, invited artists, community artists, schools and craft groups or from touring exhibitions.

Burnie Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) houses a nationally significant permanent art collection with a focus on paper in recognition of the region’s history of papermaking. In 2007 the establishment of the biennial Burnie Print Prize confirmed Burnie as a printmaking hub and the acquisitive prize remains one Australia’s richest for printmaking. Through competitions, judicious purchases and donations, the collection has grown to over 1300 artworks with a large portion as prints including recent acquisitions in digital print. BRAG also collects artwork in other media by contemporary Australian artists and particularly Tasmanian artists.
