The Gallery's purpose is to preserve, interpret, display and acquire the visual arts from the past and the present with an emphasis on the art of Western Australia and Indigenous art.

The State Art Collection comprises 16,500 works in a range of media including painting, sculpture, craft and design, watercolours, drawings, photography and prints. Indigenous art is a highlight, providing a comprehensive overview of traditional and contemporary art from Western Australia, the Central Desert and Arnhemland. The Collection also has pre-eminent holdings of Western Australian art, craft and design from 1829 to the present.
