VTS group work_2016




4 Mar 2023 – 21 May 2023

Following on from the first iteration of 'Gifted' in 2022, 'Gifted 2' provides a fresh take on the works that have come by way of donation, and have since come to define the Gallery’s prestigious collection of art.

Gifted 2 charts the growth of the Gallery with a focus on the last decade, when nearly 80% of works have entered the collection, over 90% of which have been either purchased with assistance or directly donated. Gippsland’s collection is truly a community collection—built by the people, for the people. It is the culmination of years of support for the Gallery, from both within Gippsland and from outside the region, through the generous benefaction of donors who have desired to share their love of art with the wider world.

Gifted 2 is a celebration of the culture of giving that has defined the Gallery since its inception, enabling it to grow and to truly represent the art of Gippsland for today’s and future generations. It is an exhibition to inspire and delight, and to reveal the depth of generosity that has given birth to the Gallery we all enjoy today.
