Benalla Art Gallery is a public art gallery in the regional town of Benalla, Victoria, Australia.

The Benalla Art Gallery is a free, public gallery in Benalla, which opened in 1975. Victoria's Herald Sun newspaper described it in 2013 as one of Victoria's top ten regional galleries, with a "striking modernist building". The gallery complex was designed by Colin Munro and Philip Sargeant. The gallery's original design was reduced in size, culminating in an expansion proposal being canvassed in 2013.
In 2013 a new art prize was announced for a work of the naked human figure. The winner of the non-acquisitive $50,000 2014 Benalla Nude Art Prize for 2014 was Juan Davila. Artists whose work is held by the Benalla Art Gallery include Constance Stokes and Jan Hendrik Scheltema.

The gallery is a member of the Public Galleries Association of Victoria.

  • Enjoyed sitting outside in the shade enjoying our great breakfast looking out at the lake. Doesn’t get much better than this!

  • Modern gallery, well laid out with an interesting collection of artworks. We've visited twice. Both times, we've missed out on an exhibition still being mounted. Nicely compensated by a good selection of reasonably priced food at the gallery's cafe.
  • Loved the landscape paintings and the little cafe. Had a lovely seafood platter for lunch.
