Frida COCHRANE: Carnival 1971
Gift of the Jacaranda Art Society 1988

The Grafton Regional Gallery has an active volunteer group of Friends (FOGG) that help Gallery staff at events such as official openings. They present lively programs and sponsor the major award for the biennial Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award which assists with the ongoing developing the gallery’s collection of contemporary Australian Drawing.

Through fundraising, the FOGG help to raise the profile of the Gallery and its exhibiting artists by purchasing equipment which assists in providing facilities for the comfort of Gallery visitors. Becoming a Friend is a great way to become involved, you will regularly receive information about activities and events to keep you informed of all that’s happening at the Gallery and in the visual arts of the Clarence Valley.

Membership entitles you to a range of benefits such as a discount at the Gallery Shop and will introduce you to an established community of like-minded people. Friends of Grafton Gallery membership is open to all persons for an annual subscription fee of $30 for an individual and $50 for a family. To encourage our young art lovers, school students can join for only $10 per year.
