Friends of the Crawford

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, culture and heritage.

The Crawford Art Gallery is assisted in its fundraising by the Friends of the Crawford who as an independent support organisation were established in May 1989 under Mrs. R. O'Brien, comprising over four hundred art lovers whose financial support is invaluable. These generous art patrons are dedicated to assisting the Gallery and to building public awareness of the superb collection, which contributes so much to the visual arts of Ireland.

Join the Friends of the Crawford Art Gallery membership program: it’s a fun, social, creative and educational way to engage with exhibitions and events at the Gallery! Members are invited to participate in a program of events including lectures, exhibition previews, and private tours.

  • Through your membership and participation in the Friends ́ events we provide support to the Gallery for future acquisitions of art and for exhibitions. Most importantly, you will also have the satisfaction of knowing that your annual subscription is directed to the Gallery's Acquisition Fund.
  • Members of the Friends of the Crawford Art Gallery receive notification of, and invitations to, the opening of all Gallery 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, 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.
  • Each year we organise a tour abroad for our members to places of cultural interest throughout Europe. Recent tours have been to Istanbul, Sicily, Malta and Madrid.
