Nan Tien Art Gallery

The vision of the Nan Tien Art Gallery (NTAG) is to serve the community by providing a place for spiritual growth and an opportunity to integrate Buddhism with culture and art. Through educational programs, the Gallery aims to purify the people’s mind, and to plant the roots to future generations, promoting healthy children and family activities, bringing art into daily life, and spreading joy to the world.

Community Engagement Art Project

The Community Engagement Art Project is organised by the NTAG as an outreach to its local community. It is open to artists in the region of Illawarra. The title for the 2019 Community Engagement Art Project is “Season of Love” and will take place from 7 December 2019 to 8 March 2020 in the NTAG. Submitted art works may consist of traditional or contemporary art forms and must be created under the theme “What is Love?”, based on articles by Venerable Master Hsing Yun, founder of the NTAG.


The Community Engagement Art Project is open to artists in the region of Illawarra. Artists in the region may submit an “expression of interest” either online or by post mail.
