To celebrate History Week 2018, the Wollongong Art Gallery is hosting a new exhibition titled THE GIFT: Remembering Bob Sredersas which will run until Sunday 9 September.

In 1976, Lithuanian migrant, Bronius (Bob) Sredersas transformed the cultural landscape of Wollongong by donating his collection of paintings, China and New Guinea artefacts to the City of Wollongong; precipitating the opening of the city’s first gallery in 1978.

For the first time in the Gallery’s history, Bob’s own thoughts on art, his belongings, personal papers, and paintings from the Sredersas collection, are brought together in this immersive installation; shedding light on the life and character of a unique individual and his vision for Wollongong’s future.
