The Alan Baker Art Gallery occupies the recently renovated, historic Macaria building and provides an opportunity to honour local artist Alan Baker and showcase his artworks.
The Alan Baker collection represent a colourful portrayal of an artist’s life in 20th Century Australia and tells a story of life, Australian tradition, culture and artistic journey.
Alan’s works reveal stories of love, family, community, war, beauty, darkness and tragedy; each capturing history. He reveals the people and places of Macarthur and the role he played in developing an arts network in Camden.
Whilst the gallery is a dedicated showcase of Alan Baker’s works, it also provides an opportunity to connect local artists, foster future artists and promote art in Camden.
Macaria will now be open to the public for the first time in many decades. A total of 79 art works will be on exhibition for public viewing from 11am to 4pm each Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
