Your Collection: Today’s Paper


In 2010, in consultation with the Aboriginal Reference Group, Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery launched an exciting new focus collection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander works on paper.

The gallery and the Lake Macquarie Art Gallery Society have since augmented this sub-collection with their respective purchases of contemporary works by Freddie Timms, Eubena Nampitjin, Kathleen Paddoon, Ningie Nangala and Vernon Ah Kee.

Today’s Paper officially launches this growing new sub-collection, offering Lake Macquarie residents an opportunity to boast of their gallery’s recent acquisitions alongside others in the collection by well-known artists such as Douglas Archibald, Jonathan Jones and Jason Wing.

A gallery project coordinated by Meryl Ryan and Rob Cleworth in consultation with the Aboriginal Reference Group.
