Art Gallery Society sponsors and supporters

The Art Gallery Society of NSW is Australia's leading art support organisation with more than 30,000 members and has the most vibrant program of art-related social and cultural events to be found in any Sydney institution.

As a not-for-profit organisation we rely heavily on the generous support of sponsors. Through your sponsorship your business can also take advantage of our unique marketing, public relations and incentive opportunities.

Sponsors of the Art Gallery Society play an important role by supporting the Art Gallery of NSW to help raise funds to purchase works of art for the Gallery's permanent collections.

If you are interested in becoming an Art Gallery Society sponsor, we will work closely with your organisation to create a tailored sponsorship that meets your specific sponsor objectives.
