Gertrude Contemporary is a not-for-profit gallery and studio complex. Gertrude Contemporary does not represent artists or sell artworks, nor does the organisation charge gallery rental.
Gertrude Contemporary receives operational funding from Creative Victoria; The Visual Arts and Crafts Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments; and the Australia Council for the Arts. The special projects and programs are made possible with help from philanthropic trusts, commercial sponsors and individual patrons. Gertrude Contemporary is also supported through sponsorships and individual philanthropy. For more information about Gertrude's Annual Patronage Program, click here.
The generosity of our community of patrons and sponsors are enable Gertrude to successfully deliver our artistic program. Gertrude needs your support to continue to give audiences unique insight into the creative development of artists. Our audiences engage with risk-taking, formative moments that define artist careers.
In 2016, we launched a refreshed annual giving program – Gertrude Contemporary Annual Patronage Program. This community of generous individuals makes a direct contribution to the development of artist careers across four levels of giving. Patrons invited to see the result of your patronage first-hand through a series of unique Gertrude experiences with artists in their studios and with our exhibition program.
