The Friends of AGWA is a voluntary, not-for-profit organisation.
Friends of the Art Gallery of Western Australia were formed by a group of passionate art enthusiasts. The organisation was established to promote and support the activities of the State Gallery, provide a more social forum for patrons, and assist in fundraising activities. Since its inception, the Friends have donated more than $3 million worth of important art to the state collection.
The Friends organisation is managed by an elected council of professionals chosen for their expertise in their respective fields. Councilors are elected at the annual AGM.
