Community support for the Newcastle Art Gallery collection is vital.

Alex Seton is a leading contemporary Australian artist. Often referred to as 'Australia's Michelangelo', his sculpture Paper Armada 2015 with its fleet of four hundred hand-carved, bianco carrara marble origami boats is considered a major technical and artistic achievement. 

For a $200 tax deductible donation you can secure a boat for the collection. 

Payments can be made at the Gallery Shop where your boat will be revealed on the Paper Armada 2015 display board.
