Founder Patrons


Aberdeen Art Gallery has long benefitted from enthusiastic and passionate supporters, originating thanks to the generosity of the gallery's first three Patrons: John Forbes White an art collector, artist George Reid and local granite merchant and collector of art, Alexander Macdonald. 

130 years later our patrons continue to share our enthusiasm for art and music, and our commitment to cherishing and sharing the city’s collection for future generations. 

This campaign closed in February 2021 and we wish to thank all our Founder Patrons who kindly donated.
