The PGAV is pleased to announce the Robert Salzer Foundation Acquisition Fund will be extended for a further three years. The RSF Acquisition Fund is a vital source of funding which enables eligible public galleries to acquire two-dimensional works of art for their collections. Since its inception in 2006, the RSF Acquisition Fund has supported the purchase of 210 works of art by 100 Australian artists with a combined value of $1.7million. We extend our thanks to the Robert Salzer Foundation for their ongoing support of Victoria’s pubic galleries and the development of their collections. Applications will open in March 2020.
