On 2 May 2019, we announced the exhibition focus of our 2019 Annual Giving Campaign. This will be the fabulous exhibition of the amazing Bob Gartland collection of rare Geelong Cats objects and images dating back to 1864.

Every donation towards the 2019 Annual Giving campaign will support The Geelong Gallery Foundation’s mission of providing a sustainable financial base to help ensure the future of our wonderful Geelong Gallery.

To get involved and add your support, simply use the DONATE button on this screen or elsewhere on the site to support our Gallery’s ambitions to present extraordinary exhibitions, and to help the Foundation support the Gallery’s long-term prosperity.

You’ll be immediately issued with a receipt for your tax-deductible donation, and with our massive THANKS!

The Greatest Team of All—Treasures from the Bob Gartland collection.


Through the work of our 2018 campaign, Geelong Gallery Foundation, and you its supporters, helped enable the Gallery to bring Sidney Nolan’s Ned Kelly series to Geelong! On tour from the National Gallery of Australia, Sidney Nolan’s 1946–47 images on the theme of 19th-century bushranger Ned Kelly comprise the most famous series of Australian paintings of the 20th century. Your donations last year helped ensure that we could deliver this series, an exhibition that proved not only immensely popular with the Greater Geelong community, but also a major drawcard for visitors to our great city and region.
