"Bundanon Trust Appointments"
1999-08-23 until 1999-08-23
Australian Department of Communications, Information Technology and the Arts
Sydney, , AU Australia

The Board of the Bundanon Trust has gained one new member, and two members have been re-appointed for three years. Businessman Mr David Coe joins the Board, while artist Ms Polly Boyd and Shoalhaven City Councillor Mr Trevor Kilner have been re-appointed. Ms Boyd and Mr Kilner have served on the Board since 1993.

'These appointments come at an exciting time for Bundanon,' Federal Minister for the Arts, Peter McGauran said.

'After a major building program, Bundanon now has a new, award winning education centre, substantial accommodation for artists-in-residence and buildings to house the conservation and storage of its own collection,' Mr McGauran said.

'Mr Coe, Ms Boyd and Mr Kilner bring a strong mix of business, artistic skills and local government-a valuable combination as Bundanon moves into its next stage of development,' Mr McGauran said.

David Coe is Managing Director of Allco, Chairman for Issues and Images Group, a Partner of SEL and Board Member of the Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation.

Polly Boyd is an artist and daughter of Yvonne and the late Arthur Boyd. She has been a member of the Board of the Bundanon Trust since 1993.

Trevor Kilner is Head Teacher of Industrial and Applied Technology at Nowra Technology High School and a Shoalhaven City Councillor. He has been a member of the Board of the Bundanon Trust since 1993.

The Boyds were behind the formation of the Bundanon Trust in 1993. Their gift to the nation comprises the properties of Bundanon, Riversdale and Beeweeree, as well as Eearie Park given by the Boyds and the Nolan estate. The Trust is a Government-owned company within the Commonwealth arts portfolio.

The Bundanon Trust is the result of the vision of the late Arthur Boyd, who was much-loved and admired and was one of Australia's most inspirational artists. Bundanon is of lasting importance to Australia and our arts community.
