Lovely little gallery. Nice exhibition and permanent collection. Good variety of art. Nice pieces. Has a classy sophisticated feel. They are seeking a larger facility as many of their pieces aren't able to be displayed. The whole place has a feeling of go ahead growth about it so I don't doubt they will gather the funds and go in to... More

The art museum in Shepparton is free which surprised me and art was not what I expected in a small country town. If I didn't know any better I would have thought I was in Melbourne. If you have spare time and enjoy art I recommend you stop by and take a look. The sculptures are something to see.

The current exhibition on Automotive art is excellent. Feature displays vary but usually there is something of interest and is definitely worth a visit.

I specifically visited Shepparton to see the Dream Machines - drawings of the great American Automobile courtesy of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. It was beautifully curated and presented and, as a special exhibition, did have a small cost associated with it. This particular exhibition finishes May 17th, 2015. If you still have time, have a love of design... More

There need be only one reason to go to SAM - Sam Jinks' "Woman and Child". It will confuse your senses and play with your mind. You will be discombobulated, and strangely drawn to it (them). The fact that you are looking at a sculpture and not living human beings is disconcerting to say the least. It is truly magnificent.... More

This regional gem is showing "Dream Machines:Drawings of the Great American Automobile" until 17 May 2015. For anyone even slightly interested in the post WW2 society, this provides a valuable insight into how we had the cars we did. Unfortunately, bad curating diminishes the overall effect. Eg poor contrast on the associated labels (black text on clear background attached to... More

A great set of photographs depicting the Australian culture. It makes you wonder why we worry so much about the activities of youth of today. The Sam Jinks sculpture also makes for stunning viewing,

My partner, Lou and I visited the Shepparton Art Museum on 2/1/2015. The 2 ladies at the Information Desk were very friendly and helpful. The museum is filled with beautiful pieces of artwork. My breath was taken away by the absolutely lifelike figurine of "Woman and child" by Sam Jinks. I half expected the woman to open her eyes! Sam... More
