Certainly worth more than a passing visit
Nestled in the heart of the New England North West District sits the New England Regional Art Museum (NETRAM). It exhibits more than five thousand works of art including over 1, 400 of donated artworks from the Howard Hinton Collection.
It contains six gallery spaces displaying Exhibitions that range from cultural offerings, media, photography, sculpture, drawings, paintings, a permanent collection Exhibition, and together with the Museum of Printing, an Artist's Studio and conference facilities. There is also a shop and cafe.
The Museum was opened in 1983 as a purpose built art gallery for the Howard Hinton Collection and today it is holding both Australian and international collections including Chandler Coventry Collection and NERAM Collection. With these collections and the Howard Hinton Collection together, they offer a comprehensive overview of Australian art history unmatched in regional Australia.
Some of the artists include Streeton, Roberts, Gruner, Preston, Whiteley, Gleeson, Tuckson and Christo to name a few...
Behind-the-scenes guided tours are available for a fee and by appointment only. There is also guided Storeroom Tours which is a rare and unique opportunity for us, the public, to gain access to and enjoy the hidden treasures.
The Museum also hosts a number of active and frequently changing annual exhibitions program with works from its own collections, travelling exhibitions by other galleries and exhibitions of works from leading regional artists.
