The Calleen Collection is the legacy of Cowra resident and art patron, Mrs. Patricia Fagan OAM, through the Calleen Art Award, an acquisitive art award that has grown to a substantial annual art prize open to artists across Australia. Highlights of the collection are works that reflect predominant painting styles during the past 30 years in Australia, together with a strong regional flavour.
