There has never been a better time to consider a donation to the Museum to help our Art@Abbey PLUS1 campaign to reach its $50,000 target and thus ensure Creative Australia PLUS 1 will match your donation dollar for dollar up to a further $50,000 in funding, for a TOTAL funding goal of up to $100,000.

Your donations will support us to fit out and activate our Art Gallery and café extension, to stimulate public engagement, encourage repeat visitation and dwell time and to reach and retain new audiences.

Building Funds for the Art Gallery Project

Due to a lack of suitable exhibition space the Abbey Museum has not been able to display these wonderful works of art. We are committed to making them publicly accessible and improving our facilities including provision of toilets and a café to enhance the visitor experience. We have been working with our supporters to raise funds towards this significant project.

There are many demands on our limited resources and we need the publics support to complete our fundraising and successfully deliver this exciting new initiative at the Museum.

We have been extremely fortunate in securing support from the Queensland State Government towards the new gallery construction, but we need to raise additional funds to complete this project, secure the final gallery fit out and the conservation of paintings for display.

Please consider helping us by contributing to the project appeal. We thank you in advance for your support.
