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
