gertrude's table

Gertrude’s Table is a unique private-giving program, which welcomes patrons into our community of artists, curators and writers. 

As a not-for-profit organisation, our studios, exhibitions, programs and events are fundraised through funding bodies, foundations, individuals and corporate sponsorship.  We increasingly rely on the support of individuals to financially contribute to, and advocate for, Gertrude's activities.

Membership of Gertrude's Table allows individuals to directly contribute to the professional development of emerging and mid-career artists.  There are three tiers of membership: Friends, Studio Patrons and Benefactors.  Gertrude Contemporary has a recognised charitable status and all donations are tax deductable.

In recognition of our member's support, we offer a range of benefits that are listed below.  In particular, each year, Benefactors and Studio Patrons receive one of our prestigious Gertrude Editions.  These works can been collected over time and provide a slice of history that connects people back to Gertrude Contemporary. 

Further, all members are invited to our annual Gertrude’s Table event, which is a highly anticipated and exciting opportunity to interact with Melbourne’s creative community.
