The Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre presents traveling exhibitions, local exhibitions and art prizes (including the biennial Muswellbrook Open Art Prize), along with periodic selections from the Max Watters and Shire Collections.
The Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre manages a large permanent collection which was originally founded through the Art Prize in the late 1950s. Astute adjudication of the prize over the years has provided the local community with an excellent cross-section of mid 20th century Australian art. The Shire Collection was complemented during the early 1990s when local art collector Max Watters began to loan his collection of Australian art to the community.
