WATCH THIS SPACE

Between late-December 2015 and April 2016 the Drill Hall Gallery will be shut for a major overhaul of the infrastructure. Climate control, lighting and insulation will be brought up to the exacting standards required of all reputable art galleries and museums.

The University has committed in principle a half-million dollars towards these renovations. This sum will cover the replacement of the existing thirteen-year old air-conditioning plant.

Please help us to complete the renovation of the gallery and reach our target by donating to our building fund. We are aiming to raise an additional $150,000 towards the overhaul of the gallery which will ultimately provide it with a new lease of life. A new lighting system and the insulation of the building will  result from the success of our campaign and your demonstration of public spiritedness, goodwill and generosity towards us.

Every donation of more than $2 is tax deductible.
