Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery is located at 404 - 408 Argent Street, Broken Hill. Broken Hill is the largest regional outback centre in Western New South Wales, positioned close to the South Australian border and midway between the Queensland and Victorian borders. Broken Hill is a culturally rich and diverse environment. Famous for its mining industries, silver and mineral deposits, and unionism, the city today is also identified by the strength of its arts community, and number of artists and galleries in the region. The town is also the home of The Brushmen of the Bush, a celebrated group of Australian artists including Pro Hart, Jack Absalom, Hugh Schulz, Eric Minchin and John Pickup, who took paintings of outback Australia to the world.
