Maitland Regional Art Gallery - Maitland
Maitland Regional Art Gallery (MRAG) is situated in the Hunter region, 30 minutes west of Newcastle. It sits just east of the tourist centre of the Hunter Valley Vineyards.
Steeped in history, the federation gothic building housing Maitland Regional Gallery is an awe inspiring example of early 1900s architecture. Officially opened in 1910, the building was constructed to house the Maitland Technical College, which it continued to do until 1987.
The MRAG program is based on its collection which focuses on works on paper. This medium underpins the 2010 program which has been engineered to look at developing a wider understanding for the community and developing an understanding with this 'artistic practice' which is based on the broad notion and acceptance of 'works on paper'.
