About Us

The Public Galleries Association of Victoria (PGAV) is the peak body representing over 50 art galleries across metropolitan and regional Victoria. Our role is to support, develop and promote public galleries in Victoria within a national context.

Our mission is to build the capacity of public galleries in Victoria to deliver valuable social and economic returns to their communities. To acheive this mission we act as a broker between our members, the three tiers of government, the private and philanthropic sectors, edcuation and research institutions, audiences and the community.

The PGAV undertakes research of the public gallery sector, its audiencess and its supporters. Through benchmarking of the sector in late 2014 we learned that public galleries in Victoria hold over 170,000 items in their collections with a combined worth of $4.8 billion. Importantly, public galleries in Victoria welcomed 4.3 million visitors over the 2013/14 period. The public gallery sector in Victoria is a significant component of the arts sector in Vicotria and a major contributor to the artistic, cultural, social and economic wealth of the state.
