Port Pirie Regional Art Gallery was established in 1992, exhibiting in the old baggage room of the closed passenger railway station in Port Pirie.

The redevelopment of the railway station into the Regional Tourism and Arts Centre in 1994 included the first purpose built dedicated A-class art gallery.

Gallery facilities now include an Artist in Residence Studio, Community Gallery and Workshop, with public programs encompassing outreach to schools, community groups, disability services and youth support agencies.
