Public Treasures: Collection of Cultural Gifts
17 August - 10 November 2019
Since its opening in 1976 the Rockhampton Art Gallery has built a remarkable and diverse collection of Australian and international art which attracts over 30,000 visitors a year. With over 2,000 works held in the permanent collection, the Gallery draws upon it’s collection throughout the year to inform a program of curated and touring exhibitions, art awards, education workshops and public programs.
Rockhampton Art Gallery’s Collection has benefited substantially from gifts and donations of artworks since its inception and continues to receive significant artworks through the Commonwealth Cultural Gifts Scheme. Our nationally significant Collection would not exist as it is today without these generous donations, and Public Treasures: Collection of Cultural Gifts seeks to pay tribute to the most significant champions of the Gallery and acknowledge the ongoing support of donors.
