To advance the mission of the WAG, this dynamic group:
- Raises funds for the Gallery;
- Provides volunteer support to the WAG; and
- Enhances the WAG image and standing in the community.
Established in 1948, the Associates continue to be instrumental to the WAG, providing support for children’s art programs, major exhibitions, the purchase of art, and most recently, Qaumajuq – the Inuit Art Centre.
