Would you like to donate to our art restoration project?

As you know there is more than meets the eye on at the Aigantighe. As well as curating exhibitions the staff manage an incredible permanent art collection, accumulated over the last century. Some of the artworks arrived in less than ideal state and are part of the Aigantighe restoration programme. As part of our on-going contribution to the future of the Aigantighe, we have raised funds to pay a professional conservator to bring these artworks back to their former glory so that they are of exhibition standard. The artworks are all delicate paper works that include Etchings, Watercolour, Pastel, Pen and ink, all except for one were donated to the Gallery.

Thanks to your support, the Friends have raised over $20,273.56 to restore artworks. The money was raised through the fundraising efforts of the committee via raffles, donations and grants. It is important to the Friends that the artwork will be available to not only to inspire the people of today but future generations at Aigantighe. There are still many artworks in the Aigantighe's collection that need the restorers attention.
