Overview
More
Hamilton Gallery’s collection is celebrated for its exceptional breadth and quality. The decorative arts collection, and eighteenth century works on paper, such as watercolour landscapes by Paul Sandby (1731-1809), make Hamilton Gallery a leading regional gallery in Australia. The collection includes works by major European and Australian artists. Contemporary Australian paintings form an impressive area of display. Our glass collection spans all major European glass producing traditions, with a particularly strong representation of Scandinavian glass. The Asian art collection which began with the Herbert and May Shaw Bequest (1957) now rivals some State Gallery collections. In Chinese ceramics each of the major dynasties are represented, and contemporary Japanese ceramics are a collection highlight. Our European porcelain, stoneware and earthenware show the major stylistic and technical developments from the sixteenth century to today. It is now sixty years since the core collection was bequeathed to the people of Hamilton.

The temporary exhibition of Celia Rosser’s intricate waterclours of the entire Banksia genus was the reason for our visit here. It was a stunning exhibition: the works were sympathetically displayed - but I would have appreciated some further side notes or supporting material alongside the...More

Lovely spot but not a fan of the current display but I am sure there are many more we would like. Tiny but interesting especially the tapestries.
