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 Ďangelí has long been used colloquially to describe financial backers of the arts.
Art Angels donít 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.
Joining Art Angels costs just $1,200 per year.
