Celebrating 44 years of the collection.

Wollongong City Council began collecting art works from local art prize exhibitions with the assistance of the Wollongong Art Purchase Committee in 1956. These works, and a number of gifted art works, formed the city’s Art Collection when Wollongong Art Gallery was opened in 1978. Today the Wollongong Art Gallery Collection comprises 3,257 works spanning across a diverse range of objects from Neolithic pots in the Mann-Tatlow Collection of Asian Art to Colonial and Early Australian Art from 1831, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art from 1950 and Contemporary Art from 1960.
