Macquarie University established its collection in 1967 with the aim of acquiring artworks that would reflect cultural and critical values of importance to Australian society. The 1974 gift of a major artwork by renowned Sydney art dealer Rudy Komon provided the initial framework for the philanthropy that has allowed the collection to grow into an important learning resource.

The Macquarie University gallery is dedicated to the preservation, management, display and interpretation of the University collection for the benefit of present and future generations. The gallery also presents a changing program of about six to eight shows each year.

Both Abbotsleigh and Macquarie University recognise the powerful impact that learning in and through the arts holds in the broader curriculum and wider community and realise the great potential for the arts to play a crucial role in the development of transformative learning experiences.
