South East Centre for Contemporary Art (SECCA)
The gallery is temporarily closed for redevelopment projects.
SECCA is located in the South East corner of New South Wales, half way between Sydney and Melbourne and three hours’ drive from Canberra.
Holding up to eight exhibitions annually, the gallery also boasts one of the country’s richest and most loved portrait awards, a AUD50,000 non-acquisitive prize for realistic portraiture which in 2020 will reach its twelfth anniversary.
The gallery hosts touring exhibitions of national significance along with its own exclusively curated exhibitions as part of its cultural tourism plan that is designed to engage visitors to the region.
SECCA is principally funded by the Bega Valley Shire Council, and the NSW Government through Create NSW.
