The Geelong Gallery Grasshoppers have been a key support group for over 30 years, raising funds to assist with the development of the permanent collection.
The Geelong Gallery Grasshoppers host special events such as cocktail parties, dinners as well as coach trips to other galleries and places of interest.
Funds raised through these events have contributed to the refurbishment of the Gallery and most significantly, to the acquisition of works of art for the Gallery’s permanent collection. In particular the Geelong Gallery Grasshoppers support the biennial Geelong acquisitive print awards. Since 1996, $5,000 per year has been made available for the award.
All Gallery members are invited to express an interest in joining other like-minded art lovers to make a difference. Regular meetings take place on the first Tuesday evening each month.
