Description

Much of the Shire of Plantagenet's Art collection is now on display in the Mount Barker Community Resource Centre, after being in storage due to the redevelopment of the library.

The last discernable gift being in 1972. The total number of works gifted to the Shire is 56.

Other works were acquired by the shire on an ad-hoc basis until the establishment of the annual Shire of Plantagenet Art Acquisition in 1991.

The Shire of Plantagenet collection contains many important works by renowned 20th century, Australian and Western Australian artists that make it one of the most significant local government art collections in Western Australia.

The people of the Shire of Plantagenet are very fortunate to have such a fine art collection. It remains a testament to Claude Hotchin's vision in bringing such quality artworks to the people of regional Western Australia.
