Collection Circle acquisition program

Help build the Gallery’s collection

Despite being a public gallery, we receive no government funding for acquisitions and have not done so for two decades. The funds raised from members fees and events go towards purchasing artworks.

What is the Collection Circle?

To supplement these funds, we’ve created an acquisition program for members from any membership category who, in addition to their membership fee, wish to make a tax-deductible donation specifically directed towards the acquisition of artworks for the Gallery.

How the Collection Circle helps
