Join us for drinks in the gallery forecourt to celebrate the opening of our latest exhibition, Highlights from the ANU Art Collection.

The ANU Art collection comprises more than 3000 works. It is periodically swelled by magnificent additions. Here is a significant sampling, on view for only three weeks. It includes recent philanthropic gifts and acquisitions, newly restored works and major paintings by senior Indigenous women of law, such as Angelina Pwerle Ngala and Emily Kame Kngwarreye. ANU Alumnae staff and students featured in this show include Dionisia Salas, Sheida Sabetraftar, Vivienne Binns  and Ruth Waller among others.

General note: The gallery audience capacity is currently 45 people. With up to 120 people ticketed for the event drinks in the forecourt note that only 45 visitors will be able to view the exhibition at any one time.

Note our wet weather contingency: In the event of wet weather the opening will be staged. We will email you three hours before the event to confirm your opening session, the first being 6-6.45 pm, the second being 7–7.45pm and the third 8–8.30pm.
