The Devonport Regional Gallery is a regional public art gallery in North West Tasmania.
The Devonport Regional Gallery is housed in a converted 19th century church in the town’s centre. It features a permanent collection of fine and decorative art and craft, with a predominant interest in 20th century glass, ceramics and woodcraft. There is an emphasis on work by Tasmanian artists, and the Gallery sometimes hosts touring exhibitions throughout the year. An ongoing public art program includes workshops, artists’ floor talks, lectures and holiday art activities. The Gallery has exhibited work by a number of prominent Australian artists including Tasmanian painter David Keeling, West Australian artist Jonathan Kimberley and renowned Tasmanian printmaker Bea Maddock. Admission is free to the Devonport Regional Art Gallery and is open daily.
Other galleries and museums in Devonport include the Tiagarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre – an interpretation centre for the history, cultures and art of Aboriginal people in Tasmania. You can visit the working exhibits at the Don River Railway Museum or explore Tasmania’s seagoing history at the Tasmanian Maritime Museum.
