The Turner Galleries Art Angels Incorporated are patrons of an innovative Artist in Residence Programme, designed to provide practical support to artists in Australia. In fact the term ‘angel’ has long been used colloquially to describe financial backers of the arts.
Art Angels don’t just provide financial support to the visual arts. The Angels extend artistic networks between Perth and the rest of the art world while building friendships between artists and patrons. At a series of social events, hosted by Turner Galleries, Art Angels meet the interstate artists they have sponsored. Informal lectures develop their knowledge of art investment for pleasure and profit and the care of a collection. Guided tours of major exhibitions and artist studio visits add to their enjoyment and knowlege of art.
Since Art Angels was formed in late 2001, we have had almost 100 members contributing over $500,000 towards the Artist in Residence and the Art Acquisition programmes. This has enabled us to invite extremely high calibre artists to Perth for residencies and exhibitions. In return, Art Angels are now the proud owners of limited edition artworks by over 40 artists who participated in the Artist in Residence program.
Art Angels also supports leading local artists and galleries through the acquisition of artworks by local artists that were acquired on behalf of the Art Angels, over the years 200 artworks have been distributed to lucky subscribers at the annual Art Angels function. You can see a full list of previous Art Angels artists and artworks here.
The 2017 Art Angels will be helping to bring three fabulous artists to Perth for the Artist in Residence Program and receive a limited edition artwork from each of the following artists; Anne Zahalka, Brendan van Hek and Lucas Grogan.
Joining Art Angels costs just $1,200 per year.
