Artifacts And Paintings

The Cultural Heritage Committee is responsible for the custody and display of historical items, artifacts and paintings held by the Celtic Club. We have created an attractive and stimulating gallery of Irish and Australian Irish artifacts and paintings on all levels of the Club; designed to educate members and visitors and to provide a visual stimulus for general viewing and cultural heritage tours. Most of these artifacts and paintings are in storage during the transition to a new venue. Cultural tours of the Club are presented during Senior’s Week in October.
