Collection Highlights and Recent Acquisitions

Sat 21 October 2023, - Sun 30 June 2024,

21 OCTOBER 2023 – 30 JUNE 2024

Orange Regional Gallery’s collection was founded on the Mary Turner Collection, which she presented to the city of Orange in 1982. Since then the permanent collection has grown to include over 1600 works of Australian art from the 1920s to today.

The collection has expanded rapidly over the last five years thanks to the extraordinary generosity of artists and collectors.

Recent additions presented in this exhibition include works by Jenni Kemarre Martiniello, Catherine O’Donnell, Anna Kristensen, Steve Lopes, Grace Cossington Smith, Roland Wakelin, Enid Cambridge, Justin O’Brien, Kevin Connor, Margaret Loy Pula, Tom Polo, Mavis Ngallametta, Tim Storrier and Aida Tomescu. These are shown alongside collection highlights.

The Gallery acknowledges the ongoing support of the Friends of Orange Regional Gallery for purchases and fundraising.
