2018 marks the 40th Anniversary of Wollongong Art Gallery. The path to establish an art gallery that would provide a cultural focus for the city and the surrounding region was a long one and only made possible by the sustained lobbying and contribution of many people over many years. The road was paved by the passion and commitment of the Illawarra Art Society, hundreds of volunteers and donors and the goodwill of the people of this community.
Over its 40 years Wollongong Art Gallery
has presented hundreds of exhibitions,
supported innumerable artists and provided
an exhaustive range of diverse opportunities
for cultural engagement in the region.
