The above list includes a great number of works of art from the PELMAMA PERMANENT ART COLLECTION received from THF Basel during April 2006, as an outright donation to the Oliewenhuis Art Museum (D2006). Likewise, a large collection of fine art books on international artists was received.
At the same time the OAM received as an outright donation a few works from a private collection in Basel, not being part of the PELMAMA Permanent Art Collection:
As the Oliewenhuis Art Museum funded all costs relating to the packing, air transport and transit insurance from Basel to Bloemfontein during April, 2006, it was agreed that all works which had previously been on temporary loan to the OAM were henceforth considered to be on permanent loan to the OAM.

The exhibition of the collection of works from the PELMAMA Permanent Art Collection at the Oliewenhuis Art Museum, Bloemfontein, was officially opened on 9th July, 2007, by Mr Vusithemba Ndima, Chief Director: Heritage, National Department of Arts and Culture (see PDF for stills).
A DVD was made of the opening party - copies are available from the Museum's office at a nominal cost.
On this occasion, a richly illustrated catalogue (56 pages with 126 illustrations in colour) listing 348 works, was published by the Oliewenhuis Art Museum, in an edition of 300 only, and can be obtained directly from the Museum's office.
