Southern Highlands Gallery at Retford Park Working Committee

The idea arose and was progressed through artist Ben Quilty.
Mr Quilty coordinated the preparation of a grant application to the state government’s Regional Cultural Fund which sits within the Regional Growth Fund.
In working towards establishing the Regional Gallery including raising the remaining funds for the project, a working committee has been established by Mr Quilty.
The Working Committee will be chaired by Mr Quilty and representation has been invited from various organisations including the NSW National Trust owners of the site, supporters of a Southern Highlands Regional Gallery and council.
