THE COLLECTION presents the first exhibition curated from the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre Collection, which was launched in March 2014. Since then over 100 significant  artworks by local and Australian artists have been aquired for the collection. Each artwork was selected based on its excellence, relevance, value and ability to celebrate the cultural identity of the Blue Mountains.

Artists presented in the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre Collection include James Blackwell, Blue Mountains Illustrators, John Caldwell, Peter Kingston, Michael Mandelc, Scott Marr, Andrew Merry, Bernard Ollis, Simon Reece, Leo Robba, Joan Ross, Wendy Sharpe, Garry Shead, Nicole Welch, Freedom Wilson and Ken and Julia Yonetani.
