Friends of York Art Gallery
Welcome to the Friends of York Art Gallery website
The Friends are a growing number of supporters of York Art Gallery.
Our main purpose is to help the gallery achieve its acquisitions' targets by making grants for the purchase of works of art, conservation, education etc. We fund this by raising money through an active events programme and annual membership subscription, and we have a regular newsletter. Over the years the Friends have also benefited from generous donations and bequests from its members, which have been augmented by Gift Aid. You might like to view our Constitution.
We have around 600 members, and are keen to increase this number. You’ll find our membership subscription simple and great value for money!
In connection with the Redevelopment of the Gallery which will take place in 2013 we have launched an Appeal to pay for the fitting out of the Fine Art Store. We should be grateful for your support.
We have a busy committee who meet quarterly, with our AGM in Spring.
We’re keen to build useful links with other relevant organisations such as art colleges and other local cultural organisations, and invite you to contact us to explore membership and other opportunities.
