As a young artist he was included in the landmark 1968 exhibition The Field at the National Gallery of Victoria. (recreated in 2018). In 2004, Coleing was awarded the Alice Prize. Coleing's work is included in many significant collections, such as the National Gallery of Australia, the Te Papa Museum of New Zealand, the Art Gallery of NSW, the Art Gallery of South Australia and the British Museum.
