The Mudgee Arts Precinct – Gallery sits at the heart of art and culture in north-western New South Wales. The new building stems from the long-awaited refurbishment and expansion of the former Cudgegong Shire facility, featuring office spaces, workshops and seminar areas across the two levels. Meanwhile, the gallery attachment contains exhibition space for visiting collections, a tourism office, and sculpture garden. The new addition has its own architectural character that springboards off its predecessor. Sitting at a 45-degree axis, the gallery purposely juxtaposes with the traditional order of its Victorian neighbour. With projecting bays of deep red, the gallery emerges as a sculpture in the landscape, both a contemporary icon and a homage to Australian natural and cultural history.

Mudgee Arts Precinct was awarded the 2022 NSW Country Division Award and Shortlisted for the World Architecture Festival 2022.
