City Collection

The Geraldton Regional Art Gallery is home to the City of Greater Geraldton's Art Collection which is comprised of over 475 artworks, principally paintings and works on paper.

The City Collection began in 1959 with a bequest of 39 artworks to the then Town of Geraldton by Western Australian philanthropist, the late Sir Claude Hotchin. Hotchin generously gifted his collection to towns throughout regional Western Australia in an effort to bring significant works of art to people living in the regions.

Today, the CGG collection boasts works by local and West Australian contemporary artists and nationally significant artists such as Norman Lindsay, Robert Juniper, Tracey Moffatt, Howard Taylor, Julie Dowling, Hans Heysen, Elizabeth Durack and more.
