This panel discussion will give audience members a personal insight into the key private collections of the Lyon Collection and Ten Cubed Gallery, as well as how curators are working together with both public and private collections.

Panelists:
  Corbett Lyon: Chair of the Lyon Foundation
  Dianne Gringlas: Executive Director at Ten Cubed Gallery
  Ada Moshinsky: Curator at Ten Cubed Gallery
  David Sequeira: Independent curator, artist and consultant
  Bryony Nainby: Director, Benalla Art Gallery
    and moderated by Town Hall Gallery's Senior Curator, Mardi Nowak.

Guests will have the opportunity to pick the brains of some of Australia’s most significant art collectors and discuss ideas such as: why and how people collect art; The difference between public and private collections and changes in how people have access to them; details of the panel’s experiences and some of their favourite works; why collections are important in Australia.
The event is FREE, with a cash bar operating from 6.00pm with a selection of gourmet snacks and beverages. We will be extending the gallery opening hours until 6.30pm so you have the opportunity to view The Traveller prior to the Panel Discussion.
