The Beaverbrook Art Gallery welcomes gifts of works of art that enrich the caliber of the Gallery’s renowned permanent collection, and help to fill significant gaps in our holdings. Contact Us
Our priorities and guidelines for building the collection guide the decisions concerning whether an artwork should be considered for acquisition. These include the work’s quality, cultural significance, condition, any costs of acquisition/restoration/conservation, and its connection to our existing permanent collection and collecting priorities.
When you donate a work of art, you receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the work, based on a current appraisal. If we acknowledge it as a work of national importance, it is possible that the gift can by certified by the Cultural Property Export Review Board, where a jury determines if your donation may be exempt from capital gains tax.
Please contact us if you have a work of art you are considering for donation.
