The Govett-Brewster Foundation supports the future of the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, Aotearoa New Zealand’s first and only contemporary art museum. The Foundation is the avenue for donations, gifts and bequests to provide for the development of the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery Collection and the realisation of major projects.
Supporting contemporary art
The Canvas Group
Inspired by the generosity and forward thinking of Monica Brewster, founding patron of the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, the Canvas Group builds on her legacy.
It is your means of joining a group of people with a collective purpose: to support the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery and connect with people who share a desire to experience all that art has to offer — the unexpected, the thought-provoking, the challenging and the beautiful.
By joining the Canvas Group you enable the Govett-Brewster to forge ahead as a world-class contemporary art museum, collecting, commissioning, and exhibiting contemporary art, helping us to pause and think about the world in which we live — and challenging us to see the world anew.
