Not For Self But For All: a history of the Art Gallery of Ballarat Association. By Anne Beggs-Sunter

Commended in the Local History Small Publication Award, 2019 Victorian Community History Award.

This award recognises the best small publications or or e-books which feature Victorian local, cultural or social history.

The fascinating story of the establishment and development of the Art Gallery of Ballarat has now been told in a new book by noted Ballarat historian Dr Anne Beggs-Sunter.

The history was commissioned by the Art Gallery of Ballarat Association, the community organisation which founded the Gallery in 1884 and still exists as a support organisation for the Gallery. The book is intended to celebrate the human story of the Gallery by paying tribute to the many people who have supported it and worked to ensure its development and growth over the years.

The title of the book, Not for self but for all, comes from an early crest of the Gallery devised by James Powell, the Association’s first secretary, who wrote an important account of the establishment of the Gallery in 1896.

The Association was the owner of the Gallery until 1978, which is why Association members feel so passionate about its history and take such a keen interest in its activities and aspirations.
