NGV Women's Association

The purpose of the NGV Women's Association (NGVWA) is to support the interests of the National Gallery of Victoria.  This is largely through the funding of works of art for the collections held by the NGV and through a travel scholarship for NGV curators.  In addition, since 1963, the NGVWA has provided Encouragement Awards for promising students of the Victorian College of the Arts.

The financial assistance to the NGV is fundamental to the Women’s Association’s purpose, however the NGVWA extends its role by bringing people into the NGV and by fostering a more general interest in the arts. Funds are raised through an annual program of interesting and entertaining events. Each event is designed to attract people from varied backgrounds and with different interests. Such events include lectures, seminars, visits to regional galleries, opportunities to study garden history and design and events of a more social character with an arts based theme.

Over the years the NGVWA has been able to add an important number of works to the magnificent collections of the NGV.  The works of well known artists such as Andy Warhol, Anish Kapoor, Christopher Dresser and Peter Booth are represented among the gifts of the NGVWA along with exquisite pieces of porcelain and eighteenth century needlework.
