Hunters & Collectors is a dynamic new donor campaign directly supporting the Mosman Art Collection, home to some of Australia’s most treasured Australian Impressionist and contemporary artworks by Grace Cossington-Smith, Margaret Preston and Tracey Moffatt, to name a few.

We are thrilled to announce the Hunters & Collectors fundraising campaign was an outstanding success, raising over $110,000 to support the development and care of the much-loved Mosman Art Collection and Balnaves Gift. To all our donors, Friends, volunteers, guides and the greater Mosman community, thank you for spreading the word, giving financial support and participating in our inaugural Valuation Day.

The fundraising target was achieved well before the official campaign closing date with $46,000 raised by the Mosman community. The Federal government through Creative Partnerships Australia have contributed $40,000 and our conservation partners International Conservation Services (ICS) have committed a further $25,000 in-kind.

The Gallery looks forward to sharing the results of this success over the next 12 months as the team uncover conservation highlights from the Collection. As we gradually return to normal with exhibitions and new programs, we invite you to join our ongoing Hunters & Collectors journey by donating today.

Hunters & Collectors is supported by International Conservation Services (ICS) and Creative Partnerships Australia through Plus1.
