We are a group of friends from Sydney and Newcastle who have joined together to collect contemporary Australian art from the first decade of this century. We are citizen collectors. ABC TV’s Art Nation reported on the group from the opening of an exhibition of our collection at the Newcastle Region Art Gallery.
