This is only a small art museum but well worth a visit. I was fascinated by a couple of the artworks and spent some time examining them. There are paintings by well known Australian artists, as well as aboriginal artists, and more recent works. There wasn't a display upstairs when we visited but I am sure it would be well... More

This gallery is always worth a drop in when driving through town. The shows are free and interesting both inside and out. My toddler loved the painted cows outside.

Enjoy the visit to SAM : Shepparton Art Museum. Particularly enjoyed the granite boulders of Mt Buffalo (Arthur Streeton).

We visited here recently and we were so impressed with the high standard of items exhibited some of them were spectacular. If you have a chance to visit here don't miss out going.

Permanent Ceramics, Australian paintings and works on paper. I went to the Cornucopia (meaning Horn of Plenty), showcases works by established and early career artists that utilise food and/or flora as an artistic medium or point of departure. An interesting perspective on food.

For a regional art gallery this is very good. A good rotation of art and great people to help explain and guide.

The collection is fairly eclectic with ceramics, paintings, and prints. Some lesser works of famous Australian artists are present, but the quality is varied. I liked the collection of cards for sale in the shop and the cafe next door. I really liked the cow sculptures outside, especially the football player bull.

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.
