Thank you to all who have already supported the Gallery.
We thank all the owners who lend pictures to us, both for particular exhibitions and as long term loans so they become part of the Collection. Our long term lenders’ works are a vital part of the collection, and their presence is evident in all our exhibitions. More of these are gradually being signed over in estate planning with the intention that they are eventually bequeathed to the Gallery. The Acceptance in Lieu and Private Treaty schemes administered by Arts Council England have been critical vehicles for facilitating such long-term planning.
We are also grateful to the funding bodies and charitable trusts that have supported so many of our acquisitions and other funding needs over the years. These include:The Heritage Lottery Fund; The Art Fund; The Arts Council England/V&A Purchase Grant Fund; The Band Trust; the Monument Trust; The Foyle Foundation; The Bayliss Trust; The Stevenson Trust; The Prince Philip Trust; The Arts Society Chiltern; The Association of Independent Museums; South East Museum Development; and The Friends of the Stanley Spencer Gallery.
Works generously loaned for specific exhibitions by other Museums and Galleries supplement works in our collection. This support, facilitated by the Government Indemnity Scheme administered by Arts Council England, is invaluable in enabling us to produce exhibitions to the highest standards.ar
