BRAGS 50 Years: The Art of Giving

15 FEBRUARY – 7 APRIL 2019


The Bathurst Regional Art Gallery Society Inc. (BRAGS) was established as a fundraising organisation for the Galley in 1969. In its 50 years of continual support, BRAGS has contributed to the purchase of 70 works for the permanent collection, including the commissioning of Stephen Hart’s Peace Park sculpture Conversation in 1988. This exhibition celebrates the contribution BRAGS has made to the cultural life of Bathurst and highlights the important role fundraising organisations play in supporting the arts in regional Australia.
