Friends at a private view event


Become a friend of the Victoria Art Gallery

The Friends support the Gallery by contributing towards the purchase of relevant additions to the permanent collection. Recent examples include works by Gillian Ayres and Michael Craig-Martin. The Friends have also supported one-off purchases, such as decorative arts open storage cases and conservation projects.

For a modest subscription, why not join the Friends of the Victoria Art Gallery and receive invitations to all our Private Views, and benefit from first call on special trips and other events? You will also be eligible for 10% discount in the Gallery shop.

We help the Gallery by using our personal skills in so many ways. We are helping the community at large by constantly supporting the Gallery in increasing the quality, range and condition of the material on show. It is so worthwhile, personally satisfying and great fun at the same time. To contact the membership secretary please email [email protected]
