This exhibition presents a selection of works from a major gift from local collectors and philanthropists Jim Birkett and Roy Weatherhead. Birkett and Weatherhead are well known in the region for their commitment to the arts and their tireless enthusiasm for art education and support of artists. Their personal collection includes paintings, sculpture and textile works with a focus on contemporary Australian artists and works from South East Asia. As owners of a private gallery in Sydney, Birkett and Weatherhead supported emerging artists, with early works from artists such as Grace Burzese making up an important part of the collection. Other artists featured include Warwick Keen, Margaret Woodward, Isabel Davies, Leslie Oliver, Fiona Foley and Graham Blondel.

The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures. The exhibition can also be viewed online here.
