Exploring our enduring love affair with summer, ‘Local Summer’ features selected works and historical photographs from the Town Hall Gallery and Boroondara Library Service Collections that celebrate the Australian sunshine, landscape and carefree days. This exhibition provides a nostalgic glimpse into summers past; a time of year for enjoying outdoor barbeques, sharing gifts, playing sports, burning our feet in the sand, and watching sunsets on balmy nights.

Combining artworks, historical and civic memorabilia from the past municipalities of Kew, Hawthorn and Camberwell, the Town Hall Gallery Collection aims to nurture a sense of community and shared history as well as enhance public spaces and community wellbeing. The Collection highlights the diverse cultural interests and social history of the Boroondara community.

Items from the Collection can be viewed online at Town Hall Gallery Collection database.
