Art Centre Support


Close to $600,000 has been raised so far through grants, donations and fundraising initiatives but we still have much to do. If you would like to make a contribution towards the project, we would appreciate your support.




The Gallery has undertaken a number of fundraising initiatives over the past few years including a variety of art auctions, goods and trades auctions and quiz nights. We are currently selling original 'Old Hokonui' lithographs by Hawke's Bay artist Dick Frizzell, framed for $200 each. Gore artist Jacqui Byars has created woodcuts of the church which are $80 each unframed. Dunedin artist Janet de Wagt has created artworks in the silhouette of the East Gore Church.  Each is a one-off piece and there are two different silhouettes available for sale at $180 each - see shop.
