Charles Sturt University Art Collection

The University Art Collection, like all art collections reflects those who assembled it. The Collection has been accumulating since the 1940's as educational institutions amalgamated and became subsumed by The Charles Sturt University. The Wagga Wagga and Goulburn Teachers Colleges collected through donation and its art masters insight a number of fine early-modern, Sydney based artists. The artists Frank Hinder and Rah Fizelle are well represented to name a few. Increasingly an Australian Indigenous art component both from the Western Desert, and Urban communities has been a focus, along with the restoration and best practice conservation and framing of early works on paper.

The mission of the collection is to serve the University and its regional communities through the establishment of a quality collection of twentieth century art works, and one endeavours to fulfil this mission by giving the community a greater understanding of art and expanding the minds of the students of the university, and the members of our mainly regional, and rural, communities through the exhibiting, and development of the collection both through donation and select purchase. The collection now boasts over 1800 pieces, and the works from the collection are displayed in public spaces on the main three campuses of the University. Exhibitions are arranged on a yearly basis, and toured infrequently.
