CREATIVE CIRCLE

Mosman Art Gallery invite you to join the Creative Circle, a dynamic group of like-minded individuals whose annual donation directly supports the Gallery’s artistic program, education and learning programs, acquistion of new work and the ongoing preservation of the Mosman Art Collection.

‘Mosman has given me a lot in my life - and I am delighted to give something back’  ...  Neil Balnaves AO

Established in 1998 Mosman Art Gallery is home to the Mosman Art Prize, one of the oldest and most prestigious art awards in Australia, and The Balnaves Gift, a collection of important Australian Impressionist and early twentieth century artworks significant to the Mosman area.  The Gallery presents a rigorous exhibition program exploring ideas and artists from the region, commissions of new work through to major national and international touring projects.

Creative Circle is an exciting opportunity for you to support Mosman Art Gallery and enjoy a closer association with the Gallery as a higher-level supporter. For $1,000 per annum you will contribute to the acquisition of new works for the Mosman Art Collection, allow the gallery to expand its education and learning programs and continue to present a lively artistic program, working with some of Australia’s leading contemporary artists and institutions.

As part of the Creative Circle you will enjoy:

  • Invitations to Mosman Art Gallery exhibitions and off-site projects
  • Invitations to VIP events, private dinners and exhibition previews
  • Exclusive curatorial tours and artist walk-throughs to select exhibitions
  • Acknowledgement of your support in the Mosman Art Gallery entrance and gallery website
  • A full tax deductible donation

Your support as a member of the Creative Circle contributes greatly to the enduring importance of Mosman Art Gallery as a culturally significant site in Australian art history.

Creative Circle is an annual giving program supported by a loyal and passionate group of Mosman Art Gallery supporters who financially assist the Gallery to achieve its goals. The donations received provide a reliable, ongoing source of income that underpins all of Mosman Art Gallery’s activities and gives the Gallery the capacity to nurture and exhibit established and existing Australian artists who touch and inspire visitors from Sydney and beyond.

Creative Circle members have a very close connection with the gallery. Some have been supporters over many years while others have joined more recently. Creative Circle members receive exclusive invitations to art connecting – art collecting experiences. From previews of our latest exhibitions, to drinks with the artists, to private viewings in collector's homes – Creative Circle members experience the best of the Mosman Art Gallery first!

While the Gallery gratefully accepts donations at all levels, contributions to the Creative Circle begin with an annual tax deductible donation of $1,000. To assist with the planning of exhibitions and programming, members are encouraged to pledge $1,000 each year for three years.
