Alan Baker Art Gallery showcases the work of local Australian artist, Alan Baker (1914-1987), including portraits, land and seascapes, floral and still life works, and commercial art. Situated in the historic Victorian Gentleman’s Townhouse, Macaria, Baker’s collection provides a colourful portrayal of the artist’s life in 20th century Australia, capturing 60 years of the artist’s journey.
Few collections worldwide embrace the complete life of the artist, family and their place within the community. Baker’s collection shares stories of war, tragedy, love, the people and places of Macarthur, and the role he played in developing an arts network in Camden.
Through its collection and public program of art workshops, Alan Baker Art Gallery has established itself as a vibrant part of Camden’s cultural precinct.

Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
