Your membership means:

You are contributing to your community:

  • Your membership fees are a much needed and appreciated contribution toward the operational running costs of the Upstairs Art Gallery. We are funded partly by the Auckland Council. Every year there is a shortfall of funds which means we are consistently seeking and applying for funding from various other bodies. Fundraising is always an ongoing process for a not-for-profit organization and your support by way of your continued membership is highly valued.
  • Your membership means you are also invited to attend our AGM where the opportunity to join our committee is presented by way of vote. 

You are especially welcome to our opening events:

  • Join us each month to enjoy a lovely couple of hours with nibbles, live music and be among the first to view our latest exhibitions - and you are very welcome to bring along your friends and family. As a general rule of thumb, our opening nights are once a month, and on a Thursday night from 6-7:30pm

We’ll give you special treatment:

  • You get 10% discount on any work you purchase from the exhibitions.

We’ll give you exposure:

  • We have 2 members shows each year, and you get discounted entry rates for our community shows.
  • As a member, we can put your artist profile, and six images, on our website. That way you have a ‘web presence’ that you can direct people and prospects to.

We’ll keep you up-to-date:

  • You’ll be on our emailing list and whenever we update our website, we’ll remind you to check it out for the latest local news of events, exhibitions, calls to artists, theatre and film listings.
