Collection

NICOLE WELCH Illuminations 2013, large scale photograph montage on aluminium base, perspex cover

Launched in March 2014, the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre Collection is continuously growing. Each artwork selected based on its excellence, relevance, value and ability to celebrate the cultural identity of the Blue Mountains. Through considered and strategic collecting, we are building a body of artwork that our community will cherish in years to come. Like all great art, the collection uplifts, inspires, educates, amazes, challenges, preserves our histories, reflects our beliefs, and will hold and protect the legacies of artists and donors who understand the value that the Arts plays in a healthy, vibrant and engaged society.

“Consider what a Blue Mountains public collection would look like today if it was started in the 1920’s. The calibre of artists over the last century that have travelled through and been inspired by the Blue Mountains landscape would have ensured that such a Collection would be one of the most prized in regional Australia. Together with the wealth of artists there have been, and continue to be, a wealth of civic leaders who have directly contributed to the development of the region. The Carrington, Scenic World, the Hydro Majestic, all landmarks that were only built because of the confidence and tenacity of community champions willing to advance the Mountains.”
Paul Brinkman, Director Blue Mountains Cultural Centre
