David Thomas, Art Gallery Director from 1965 to 1975 will be our guest to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Art Gallery Society. During his tenure, the Society was formed in 1969 and the Art Gallery Guides were introduced in 1972.
Working with a modest budget, the second Director of the Gallery built the collection with works by major Australian artists: Rupert Bunny, Grace Cossington Smith, Sydney Ball, Dale Frank and Fred Williams et al. The Nagano Collection - extensive holdings of Japanese ceramics, also came into the collection during this decade.
