About this Event

Celebrating the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery’s 50th anniversary, MPRG: FIFTY highlights the development and growth of this significant collection. Founded in 1969 by Alan McCulloch, the Mornington Peninsula Arts Centre, as it was known, acquired its first artwork in 1970. Over the past 50 years the Collection has grown to include over 1800 objects, including paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures.

A series of new collection rooms will take visitors on a journey through historical and contemporary representations of the Mornington Peninsula. Focus displays highlight Australian women printmakers from the late 1970s and early 1980s, NWOP winning works, and a series of works that ruminate on the repetitive nature of automatic drawing and stream of consciousness narratives.

The exhibition features over 100 artworks including much loved favourites like eX de Medici’s Red (Colony) 2000, Arthur Boyd’s iconic Mt Martha from Rosebud Beach 1938, Lisa Roet’s giant primate finger Orang-utan Index 2001-03 and Locust Jones’ epic Geronimo 2011.

TIMED-ENTRY TICKETING

We are ensuring that the Gallery is a safe ‘touch free’ place to visit and a safe workplace for our staff. There will be a range of procedures in place including limiting visitor numbers according to Victorian Government restrictions, practicing social distancing and implementing additional cleaning and hygiene measures.

We have slightly reduced opening hours during the initial phase of our re-opening from 11am-4pm Tuesday-Sunday. We are also introducing timed entry ticketing which will ensure we manage the number of visitors in the gallery.

This will be limited to 20 people at any one time to begin with.
