MacLaren Benefactor Art Exchange


For a $1 a day, select a piece of artwork to have on loan for one year. Looking to support and get more involved in the arts community? This is the perfect program for you.

The Benefactor Art Exchange is a longstanding MacLaren program aiming to showcase regional artists, foster regional collectors, and increase gallery membership. For over 20 years, artists have been showcasing their work in this annual exhibition while building relationships with the region’s many art collectors and budding art lovers. This year’s selection, featuring over one hundred works, serves as a preview for the main event – an enthralling art-filled evening where MacLaren Members at the Benefactor and Junior Benefactor levels have the chance to select a work of art to have on loan for the year and display in their home or business. After the year, Benefactors have the option to purchase their loaned work, making it a perfect addition to their personal collection.

It is a great opportunity to borrow an original work of art and see how your space can be transformed. The Benefactor Program is a unique way to fill your life with art, become an art collector, and build lasting relationships with working regional artists. It is these connections that play a fundamental role in supporting the development of regional artistic talent and supporting the creative futures of our community.
