The Gawler Community Gallery was opened on the 26th February 2006. It was initially housed in the station master's house at Gawler railway station, until it moved to its new premises above the Visitor Information Centre in March 2022.
It is run solely by volunteers, and led by a management committee that are elected each year. The gallery is an initiative between the Gawler Arts & Craft Community, Gawler Council,
and Arts SA.
The 2006 opening of the gallery marked the culmination of a five year struggle by the art community of Gawler, to have an art gallery.
It was long overdue for an art gallery to showcase the beautiful art that the region has to offer.
Through Federal funding and the generous support of the Gawler Council, the gallery opened at its new location in March 2022.
The gallery is located in the centre of Gawler, and it's easily accessible by a short walk from he railway station. It also offers wheelchair access.
