The Hamilton arts community is being encouraged to think big.
Following an array of sizable bequests, the city’s creative hub is planning some major developments in coming years.
The gallery received a further $100,000 this week from The Cranbourne Foundation.
Hamilton Gallery director Sarah Schmidt said the community could expect a world-class arts facility.
“The Cranbourne Foundation monies awarded to Hamilton Gallery come to us following an application made for funding to assist us in building a new Hamilton Gallery as an iconic world-class museum building,” she said.
“We are poised to enjoy more excellent support as interested parties take note of our exciting masterplan developments.
“Hamilton Gallery holds a remarkable $25 million collection and continues to curate major exhibitions stemming from or highlighting this collection.”
Hamilton Gallery was established in 1961 following a large bequest of an outstanding collection of art works left to the City of Hamilton by Herbert Buchanan Shaw.
