Hamilton Gallery

Description of Venue: Hamilton Gallery was established after the City of Hamilton received a bequest of some 870 items, mostly European and Asian decorative arts, from a local grazier Herbert Shaw. To house this bequest the City of Hamilton built a dedicated Gallery that opened in 1961. Ten years later the City acquired a group of paintings by the 18th century English watercolourist Paul Sandby. The upper floor was added to accommodate these works and other gifts that had since been received. The Gallery is divided into six spaces house the Sandbys, Asian art, the Print room and Australian art upstairs with the Shaw Gallery for decorative arts and the Ashworth Gallery for travelling exhibitions being at ground floor level. The collection has grown to 8500 items through gift, purchase or bequest.
