‘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.

We are also delighted to invite local business and corporates to become members of Creative Circle Corporate for $2,000 per annum, providing an opportunity to network and join a like-minded and dynamic group of supporters.

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
