Love that the Minister for the Arts NSW, the Hon. (Ben) Benjamin Cameron Franklin, MLC, came to a school musical as one of his first events! What a great night watching phenomenal talent led by equally talented and dedicated school staff who go above and beyond on a daily basis!
Thank you for advocating for the Arts! 🙌🏻 ... See MoreSee Less
Sometimes there isn’t a word for something. Sometimes we just didn’t know it existed.
We share many human experiences… and these words prove it. You are perfectly you, and that’s a wonderful thing!

Thoughts?ANNOUNCED TODAY: The Art Gallery is honoured to be the joint recipient with the Brett Whiteley Foundation of the promised Wendy and Arkie Whiteley Bequest.
This extraordinary cultural gift to the people of NSW by Wendy Whiteley comprises nearly 2000 artworks by Brett Whiteley, currently valued at over $100 million. This promised bequest is one of the largest single donations in the Art Gallery’s 151-year history and among the most valuable collections of artworks donated to an Australian public art museum.
The bequest pays tribute to Wendy and Brett’s daughter Arkie, who died in 2001 aged just 37. With the passing of Arkie, Wendy became the sole custodian of the collection and her former husband’s legacy.
The Art Gallery will also receive Brett Whiteley's archive, to be held in the National Art Archive, which houses Australia’s largest collection of artist archives.
Proceeds from the future sale of Wendy Whiteley’s private Lavender Bay residence are to be left to the Brett Whiteley Foundation, which promotes and encourages knowledge and appreciation of the work of the late Brett Whiteley. Through the Brett Whiteley Studio, these funds will be directed towards the management and conservation of the collection, the staging of exhibitions, the continuation of public and education programming and to support external projects.
Wendy Whiteley, a passionate creator and artist, has been a dedicated collaborative benefactor to the Art Gallery and to the people of Sydney, New South Wales and Australia over many years. With this promised bequest, she continues her enormous contributions to the creative and cultural life of this country, and we are deeply grateful for her friendship and generosity.
