ART+Care

The ART+Care program, a WAG Friends initiative, seeks support from local businesses and community members to assist the GAlelry in its important work to preserve and care for the Art Collection now and for the future.

Our first restored artwork Eugene von Guerard, Cabbage Tree Forest American Creek, New South Wales has recently been returned and looks amazing.   Its currently on display in the foyer area of the Gallery for the new few weeks.

ART+Care exhibition will be reinstalled in the BlueScope Gallery very soon.  Our donors who assisted with the restoration of the von Guerard, choose works from our collection for this exhibition.   Here they are:
