Friends of Wolverhampton Art Gallery
Established in 1979, the Friends group is a charity which works to support the city of Wolverhampton’s galleries and art collections. Our aim is to raise funds to assist in the purchase of artworks for the expanding collections of 18th century to contemporary day paintings, sculptures, paper-based and digital works.
By becoming a friend you can play your part in supporting the city’s art collections and adding to them for future generations.

- 18th and 19th century British oil paintings and works on paper
- Modern British painting, sculpture and works on paper
- Contemporary painting, sculpture, works on paper, photographic, video and digital media
