The permanent collection contains more than 500 works of art and this first catalogue is a survey of the finest pieces acquired by the museum prior to 1986. Of the 239 included, 69 are illustrated in colour and the remainder B&W.
Includes: the Holladay Collection - prints, oils, photographs, pottery, pastels and sculpture from the museums founders Wilhelmina & Wallace Holladay.
