The Wollongong Art Gallery is celebrating their 40th anniversary along with the launch of a new exhibition titled ‘THE GIFT: Bob Sredersas which will run until Sunday 9 September.
This immersive and interactive installation celebrates the significant and generous gift by Bronius (Bob) Sredersas, a Lithuanian migrant and steel worker whose personal art collection became the impetus for the establishment of Wollongong Art Gallery.
Incorporating the Sredersas art collection, this innovative multidisciplinary exhibition recognises both the Gallery’s origins and celebrates the contribution that migrants and refugees have made and continue to make to our communities.
This work has been created by the Society of Histrionic Happenings under the curatorship of Anne-Louise Rentell through the Gallery’s Visiting Curators Program.
When: Sunday May 27- Sunday 9 September
Opening hours: Wednesday – Friday, 10am-5pm/ Saturday – Sunday 12pm-4pm
Where: 6 Burelli St, Wollongong NSW 2500
