As an independent support group for the Crawford Art Gallery, the Friends´ aim is to promote awareness of the Gallery, its collections and exhibitions and to foster an interest in all aspects of art and heritage. Through your membership and participation in the Friends´ events we provide support to the Gallery for future acquisitions of art and for exhibitions.
Members of the Friends of the Crawford Art Gallery have the opportunity to attend our spring and autumn series of lunchtime lectures on art history, contemporary art and our local heritage of art and architecture.
Throughout the year the Friends of the Crawford Art Gallery also host short visits and guided day tours to galleries, museums and great houses and gardens of Ireland.
Members have the opportunity to attend short talks by art historians on specific works in the Gallery´s permanent collection followed by tea/coffee and scones in the Ballymaloe Gallery café.
Each year we organise a tour abroad for our members to places of cultural interest throughout Europe. Recent tours have been to Northern Italy, Provence, St Petersburg, Berlin and Barcelona.
Members of the Friends of the Crawford Art Gallery receive notification of, and invitations to, the opening of all Gallery exhibitions.
Details of membership are available from the Friends’ Office beside the Gallery Café.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 10.30 am – 12.30 pm
