Michael Reid maintains a number of galleries supporting the promotion of contemporary art. Michael Reid Murrurundi is a complimentary and contrasting offer to the art galleries Michael Reid Sydney + Berlin & Michael Reid Northern Beaches.
Michael Reid Murrurundi was established in 2006.
Situated in the thoroughbred, vineyard and coal-belt of the Upper Hunter Valley, in the small but significant town of Murrurundi, the gallery is an accessible drive from Moree, Armidale, Tamworth, Scone, Newcastle and Sydney.
In late 2017, Michael Reid Murrurundi expanded into a new exhibition space constructed adjacent to the original gallery and the homestead Bobadil House (1842). Drawing on the history of Bobadil House as a working Colonial Inn, the Sydney based Dods and Zuccon Architects conceived the new gallery as a large agricultural ‘outbuilding’ designed to complement the existing late-Georgian sandstone structures.
With the addition of the new gallery, the old gallery housed in the former convict cellblock was turned over to our Concept Store and Kiosk. Over the last four years, with inland travel booming, Michael Reid Murrurundi has grown into a significant regional destination for art, food, retail and a most beautiful garden.
Michael Reid Murrurundi acknowledges the Wonnarua people as the
traditional owners of the land on which our gallery stands.
We pay our respects to Indigenous Elders past, present and emerging.
