The factory/warehouse in Cheltenham was established in 2001 to house a number of collections currently totalling more than 3500 paintings and works of art ranging from Aboriginal art, antique prints and maps, library, Chinese and European art and a rare collection of Earth as well as space rocks (meteorites) and related materials.
The 350 Aboriginal masterpieces that were acquired between 1990 and 1995 to form the Nangara international touring collection were returned to Cheltenham in 2009. More than 200 Emily Kame Kngwarreye works were set aside to form the core for a Melbourne located Emily Museum but failed to find government interest or sponsors to fund the ambitious project after trying for a decade.
In addition to displaying "the Emily Wall" (5 metres by 15 metres) and a rotating display from the 200 core paintings by Emily, we will include exhibitions from our other collections.
