Friends of The Atkinson Art Gallery are a voluntary organization aimed at fostering a greater interest in the Atkinson Art Gallery and visual arts in general. Founded in 1957 we have purchased over nineteen works for the gallery. Some of our funds have also helped purchase equipment for the gallery and funded talks on Art and Culture. Join us to help the collection at The Atkinson to grow. Membership to our organisation is £20 per annum. Members are entitled to free entrance to all talks.
