Where the money goes

Unlike many other galleries, AIR receive no direct government funding and we rely on sponsorship, donations and grants. Our gallery is run by volunteers , so your subscription benefits the Gallery directly, helping to:

-Support the exhibition programme and emerging artists in the North West

-Contribute to the cultural footprint of their local town

-Enable us to host workshops and events for all aspects of the community

-Allow us to run a series of disabled-led workshops for those with specific needs.

-Support our outreach work with the community, local schools and organisations. 

Adopt an Artist

As a way to support our residents here at the studios, we are also offering an 'Adopt an Artist' scheme in which people can actively support the development of an artist and their art practice. This will be through monthly donations with the benefits of:

  • First glance at new works being created

  • Private and behind the scenes access to the artists studios on set days

  • Updates and news on where that artist is exhibiting

  • Personal Invitations to the artists exhibitions and events

  • Discount on commissioned work

  • Exclusive signed piece of work/print (subject to availability)
