Former Rockhampton Art Gallery Trust Chair Merilyn Luck
with a donation from Dr Douglas Kagi.


The Rockhampton Art Gallery Trust was established in 1990 to build on earlier fundraising efforts for the Gallery in the 1970s. The Trust was a separate, independent, legal entity of community donors with a mission to plan and support activities to advance community interest in the arts and develop the Rockhampton Art Gallery Collection.  

The Trust acted to strengthen financial support for the Gallery by raising funds for new art acquisitions, encouraging donations of art works to the Gallery collection and securing corporate partnerships and sponsorships to support artistic talent in the region.
