Gallery Sponsors



Sponsorship makes such a vital contribution to AGWA. The contribution of our corporate partners contributes to important initiatives such as exhibitions, showcasing our State Collection, research and development projects, public programs and guided tours and AGWA celebrations, openings and events.

We are grateful to each and every one of our sponsors for the part they play in AGWA’s success and the importance they place in understanding the value of enriching the lives of their clients, their staff and their community through experiencing the stimulation and joy of art.


Annual Sponsors



Wesfarmers Arts | Principal Partner

Our Principal Partner, Wesfarmers Arts leads the way in our community through their diverse support of art and cultural events and programs. An inaugural financial supporter of AGWA since 1990 and AGWA’s Principal Partner, the relationship between AGWA and Wesfarmers Arts is continually evolving and is distinctive for its collaborative endeavours and for the range and depth of benefits enjoyed by both parties. Wesfarmers understand the distinction and importance of both corporate philanthropy and corporate sponsorship. This is demonstrated through being one of the four lead corporate donors contributing a million to the Gallery Foundation’s TomorrowFund in 2008, and through Wesfarmers Arts renewal of their Principal Gallery sponsorship for AGWA's exhibitions and public programs.

A component of Wesfarmers Arts annual sponsorship goes to the Gallery’s twice daily, free guided Wesfarmers Arts tours where AGWA’s expert Gallery guides share aspects and insights of the State Collection and touring exhibitions with the WA public and visitors to our state.
