Art Collective WA Benefactors make our exhibitions a reality
Once a year, we call on interested art collectors to become our Benefactors. All contributions support the costs of our annual exhibition program. We could not run throughout the year without this support - consequently, our Benefactors are vital.
‘In its short history so far, Art Collective WA has achieved incredible results for WA artists. It is a lean and dynamic organisation, that punches well above its small size. They are doing so much to bring hardworking talented artists into the foreground, which then provides the means for these artists to keep contributing to the cultural life of Australia. We are pleased to support Art Collective WA.’ [Benefactor]
How the Benefactors' Program Works
The Benefactors’ program is a delightful, lucky dip style of affair - limited to about 20 places each year. In exchange for $2500 cash each Benefactor wins a significant original artwork donated by one of our member artists, valued at around $4000.
The artworks are drawn at our annual Benefactors’ Cocktail Party usually at the end of June (In 2020, this is deferred to end of August). This entertaining event is held in the gallery, surrounded by the exhibition of all the works and with the artists too. It’s an exclusive opportunity and one which our Benefactors’ tell us they enjoy - for the nail-biting reveal, as well as the camaraderie, and of course going home with a prize artwork.
