Collections policy

There has been some spirited debate after the selection committee for the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery rejected a donation of two works on paper by a well known Brisbane artist. The works did not address the criteria required for acquisition.  Some are saying the selection  range : works by significant Bundaberg artists, significant works about Bundaberg and Landscapes  is too narrow.

My personal view is that collections need to have a focus or they end up being all over the place.

Talk soon.   c
