Patrons and Friends Scheme: Join Us

As a registered charity and Arts Council England NPO, Matt's Gallery relies on the generous support of individuals.

This support keeps us commissioning new bodies of work and supporting the careers of artists, many of whom we have worked with for 39 years or more. These exhibitions engage audiences and students who travel from far and wide to experience our programme.

We seek supporters who want to enable artists to take risks and challenge audiences.

Matt's Gallery is on the cusp of its next phase of exciting developments. In 2015 the Gallery won a competitive tender for a permanent new space at Nine Elms, Wandsworth, where we will move in 2019. The new building promises 6,000 square feet of space with scope for double-height galleries. We envisage a complex that will incorporate two double-height gallery spaces alongside our archive, which will be made publicly available, a seminar room for our education work and two or three affordable artists' studios.

Your support is more essential than ever, if we are to maintain our crucial role at the very forefront of the contemporary art world.

Matt's Gallery's Benefactors, Patrons and Friends are the backbone of the gallery's support network, fostering and championing the gallery's exhibition programme and supporting us as we grow and develop.
