Art Centre Support

Show More


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 artworks
by Dunedin artist Janet de Wagt, created 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.
