Gallery Receives Major Gift from Anthony Thorn
 
We are delighted to announce the major gift of $2.5 million from Victoria artist Anthony Thorn, to support the Gallery’s planned redevelopment of our Moss Street home.

Mr. Thorn’s leadership in providing this gift to help get our redevelopment plan off to a good start is truly visionary. Throughout our history the Gallery has relied on the support of donors to both house and build our incredible collection. This gift allows us to move forward with confidence as we fundraise and plan for the future of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.

As a prairie-raised artist, Anthony Thorn’s paintings and carved works have been exhibited across Canada, France, Mexico, the U.S., and the Canary Islands and are in public collections in Canada including that of the AGGV.

In making this gift, Mr. Thorn honors the memory of his late wife Jacqueline Goldman and was inspired to give back to the community by his parents who practised life long philanthropy.

We would like to take this opportunity to publically thank Mr. Thorn for his transformative gift to our Gallery and our community.
