Update from the Gallery regarding COVID-19

The Art Gallery of New South Wales is open. In line with decisions made by the National Cabinet as communicated by the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, the Gallery is observing strict physical distancing and hygiene measures to protect the health of all visitors and staff and minimise the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), including timed-entry tickets.

Donate archive items

The Gallery’s research library and archive welcomes donations of material that will enrich our collection. This includes copies of books and catalogues that we are missing and are eager to acquire, items of historical interest to the Gallery and archival material related to artists and the art world.

Cultural Gifts Program

Occasionally items can be donated under the Cultural Gifts Program, which entitles the donor to a tax deduction for the market value of the gift. Such donations must be approved by the Gallery’s Board of Trustees. Two valuations are then sought. It is the policy of the Gallery to pay for one of these and the donor pays for the other.

For further information, see the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program.
