A message from the Chair


It has been a busy and eventful year for the Foundation and for our Gallery. Congratulations to the gallery team for a year of breathtaking exhibitions and innovative community engagement. I am honoured and humbled to be taking on the Chair’s role from Judy Hart after 7 years of dedicated service. Her legacy is a diverse and capable board, a robust new constitution, strong governance systems and processes and a sound financial position.

The Board is committed to reinvigorating the conversation around an expanded gallery in 2020. This means we will increase our commitment as a funding partner and work positively with government and community to drive delivery of this essential cultural infrastructure for our region.

The Board looks forward to working with members and donors and drawing on your continued support in 2020 as we work towards our goal of an expanded, modern gallery which showcases our acclaimed collection and reflects Newcastle’s creative heart.

Wishing you, your family and friends a safe and happy holiday season.

Thank you again for your support and we look forward to seeing you in 2020.
