Join the MacLaren Patron Circle 

The MacLaren Art Centre's Patron Circle is a dedicated group of arts and culture enthusiasts who support the MacLaren with annual donations of $1000 or more. These generous individuals provide critical support for MacLaren programmes and a growing collection of art, creating a legacy for current and future generations.

The Patron Circle shares a commitment to having a world-class art gallery in Barrie and helps ensure that the MacLaren continues to offer exceptional and accessible arts education for all ages. 

Through a series of private events and opportunities, Patron Circle donors deepen their own knowledge and experience of the visual arts. For more information about joining the Patron Circle, contact Sheila Delaney, Development Associate, 705-720-1044 ext 226 or sheila@maclarenart.com
