Shepparton Art Museum (SAM)

03 5832 9861

Shepparton Art Museum (SAM) has one of Australia's most important collections of historical and contemporary ceramics, along with significant holdings of Australian art in all media.

In 2011 it was redeveloped with the support of Regional Development Victoria. The latest upgrade included the construction of a dedicated street entrance, six new galleries, two new art storerooms, and the installation of LED lighting and climate control. As part of this most recent redevelopment the Shepparton Art Gallery was renamed the Shepparton Art Museum (SAM).

Today SAM focuses on collecting Australian art in all media (including ceramics), with a focus on contemporary and Indigenous Australian art. Recent acquisition highlights include work by Vernon Ah Kee, Patricia Piccinini, David Noonan, Tracey Moffatt, Dale Frank and Fiona Foley.
