FOTAG

Friends of the Tatham Art Gallery

 

 

The Friends of the Tatham Art Gallery (FOTAG) is a very enthusiastic body of friends and volunteers that supports the Tatham Art Gallery, mainly through fund-raising events. Funds raised are primarily intended for purchase of new artworks for the Tatham's permanent collection. 

Annual events include a Quiz Evening along with a variety of concerts and outings. 'Private Eye' offers members, in a small group, a private visit to a local artist's studio. 

A major fund raising event is the annual 'The Fabulous Picture Show' held in November.  Artists donate original artworks which are later auctioned at a grand Fabulous Picture Show Auction.

If you have not already done so, you are encouraged to renew your subscription or join FOTAG now. Subscriptions run from July until the end of June. Or join the e-mail list below.
