In 2018 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Curtin University Art Collection and 20 years since the creation of the John Curtin Gallery (JCG), which was built to showcase this culturally and historically significant collection. To celebrate these anniversaries and to support its future growth and success, the JCG harnessed the power of collective giving through the establishment of our Donor Circle.

The JCG Donor Circle plays an important role in supporting the Gallery, allowing us to extend our exhibition offerings and programs and showcase the work of significant Australian artists such as Christian Thompson and Brian Robinson (2019), and Sandra Hill and Ian Strange (2020). We were also able to present a symposium in association with our REFUGE exhibition (2019), further exploring the complex experiences of immigrants and refugees.

Donor Circle member benefits

As a JCG Donor Circle member, your generosity and commitment will be recognised and celebrated in the following ways:

  • invitation to an exclusive annual reception
  • invitations to exclusive exhibition previews and to meet visiting artists
  • special events, including behind-the-scenes tours of the JCG, and
  • an exclusive member lapel pin.

You will be joining a group of like-minded art lovers and donors whose support will profoundly enhance the JCG’s positive impact in the community. We hope this visible commitment to the JCG will continue to inspire you to be actively involved in the life of the Gallery.

How to join our Donor Circle community

Each Donor Circle member is asked to commit to a minimum donation of $1,000 annually over three years (totalling $3,000).

Donor Circle members create a sustainable source of funding for priority programs, including expanded community engagement programs. This helps ensure that a wider and more diverse range of audiences are able to enjoy the Gallery’s offerings. The Donor Circle also helps the JCG to plan ahead in securing exhibitions with both local and international artists who are making important contributions to the contemporary art landscape.

If you would like to join the JCG Donor Circle, please contact the Development team at or on +61 8 9266 9255 for further information, or complete the online donation form.
