Friends of Leamington Art Gallery
The Friends of Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum was founded in 1967 at the instigation of Leamington Borough Council's Librarian and Curator with the aim of supporting the Art Gallery & Museum. It began with 40 members. Since then the membership has grown steadily and the society has helped the Art Gallery and Museum in many different ways:
- Funding towards the purchase of paintings, ceramics, and other works of art.
- Support for items of local interest such as the conservation of a C19 marble
- Basin from the now demolished Aylesford Well House in Leamington Spa.
- Conservation and reframing of works within the Art Gallery and Museum collection.
- Funding of school visits to the gallery and an annual FLAG Schools Award.
- Funding of exhibition catalogues.
- Funding of a People's Award Prize at the Biennial Open Exhibition.
