Geelong Contemporary acquisition program
Geelong Contemporary was formed in 2016 to support the growth and presentation of Geelong Gallery’s acclaimed collection of contemporary Australian art. Geelong Contemporary comprises a group of external contemporary art enthusiasts and collectors who are achieving their vision through donations, an annual program of events and exclusive opportunities.
For further information, visit Geelong Contemporary.
Geelong Conservation was established in 2019 and is committed to organising events that provide access to people and places not always readily accessible to the public.
All funds raised from Geelong Conservation events contribute to the conservation of priority works as nominated by the Gallery. Since 2019, funds raised by Geelong Conservation contributed to the conservation of key works, Clarice Beckett’s Rainy Day (1930), Walter Wither’s Moonrise on the Yarra (1908) and Danilla Vassilieff’s An accident I saw (1948).

Fundraising provides the Gallery with essential financial support to ensure its long-term prosperity.
With the generous support of our community, Geelong Gallery raised $72,280 with 112 individual donors in our 2023 Annual Giving campaign focused on the development of a major drawcard survey exhibition, Cutting Through Time— Margaret Preston and Japanese Ukiyo-e prints (working title) opening in May 2024.
Overall, the collective giving of donors will enable Geelong Gallery to enhance its commitment to community engagement, employment and the critical, yet costly, transportation of works of art from private and public collections.
Here’s what we can achieve with our community’s help:
- 100 works installed by professional art handlers providing local employment opportunities
- 800 local students provided complimentary entry with an Educator tour
- 19 works to receive condition reporting and transport from private and public collections
- The acquisition of a Margaret Preston print for the Gallery’s collection, thanks to the generosity of a major contribution by one of the Gallery’s long-time donors
This exhibition will reveal the influence of historical Japanese woodcuts on the art of the ground-breaking modernist Margaret Preston (1875-1963). It will be a very beautiful, revealing exhibition.
