Dr Anne Lewis was one of Australia's most important private collectors and benefactors of art. In 2009 she generously donated major works from her Aboriginal collection to the Moree Cultural Art Foundation (the managing body of BAMM). Dr Lewis was born in Mungindi and raised in Moree. The Lewis gift was the first of many such donations by generous collectors, making BAMM home to one of the finest and most extensive collections of contemporary Aboriginal art in religion New South Wales.
The exhibition showcases highlights of the Lewis collection, including works by Sally Gabori, Kathleen Ngal, Dorothy Napangardi and George Tjungurry.
