Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery

Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery (MPRG) is the largest public gallery in the South East region of Melbourne. Entry to the Gallery is free.

Founded by leading art critic and historian Alan McCulloch, the Mornington Peninsula Arts Centre, as it was known, acquired its first artwork in 1970 and presented its first exhibitions in 1971.

MPRG's exhibition program combines a mix of self-generated curatorial projects, local artist focus projects, collection-based and touring exhibitions. They develop a range of curatorial projects commissioning artists to make new work drawing on contemporary issues and the distinctive natural environment of the Mornington Peninsula.

Over the past 50 years the MPRG Collection has grown to include over 1800 objects, including paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures. Renowned for its specialist holdings of contemporary Australian works on paper, they also hold important historical artworks that capture the cultural heritage of the Mornington Peninsula, which has been a haven and source of inspiration for many well-known artists.

They present artist talks, creative workshops and exhibition tours both in person and online.

The Gallery shop features a range of carefully curated items including showcasing the talents of our local makers as well as MPRG publications and products.

MPRG is the Mornington Peninsula Shire’s major cultural facility.
