WAG Support the Collection

Support the Collection

The Woodstock Art Gallery has worked to develop a relevant permanent collection since its founding in 1967. Over the last 50 years, the collection has grown through generous gifts of works of art, and the financial support of individuals, organizations and various levels of government.

The Gallery’s collection priorities are:

  • To collect high-quality works of art within a regional context and relevance to the artistic history of the region.
  • To collect contemporary and historic works of art by outstanding regional artists.
  • To collect contemporary and historic works of art by Canadian artists of national stature.
  • To collect art and artifacts relating to Woodstock artist Florence Carlyle.

The Woodstock Art Gallery’s Collection Committee meets a minimum of four times a year to assess all potential permanent collection acquisitions. They consider factors such as quality, authenticity and provenance, relevance to the collection, condition, value to the community, cost, storage requirements and legal considerations.

If you are interested in donating an artwork to support the permanent collection, please consult our Donor Information Sheet.

To make a financial donation to support the collection, please contact the Gallery at 519-539-6761 ext. 2801 or visit our online donation form.
