Connecting a vibrant and contemporary art-focused group.

Membership of the Govett-Brewster Foundation connects you to a vibrant contemporary art-focused group, centred in Ngāmotu-New Plymouth, with members from across Aotearoa-New Zealand.

Collectively we focus our energy and support on bold targeted projects, including commissions and acquisitions, which enhance the programme and experiences for visitors to the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery | Len Lye Centre.

Your annual membership  plays a key part in enabling us to back the gallery’s bolder work programme, providing an essential extra layer of support alongside our core investment from the New Plymouth District Council.


As a Member, you enjoy a portfolio of exclusive benefits. These include a personalised membership card that opens doors and unlocks discounts. You’ll have unlimited free access to the gallery and an ongoing 10% discount off purchases from the gallery store. You’ll be invited to member-only exhibition previews, gallery talks, contemporary art events and tours both within New Zealand and internationally. Plus you’ll receive regular email updates from both the Foundation and gallery team.

You’ll feel proud to have contributed to making a major work possible, for locals and visitors to experience.
