Presented by the Ontario Association of Art Galleries, in partnership with the DMG
$250 Non-Members
$150 OAAG Members
$45 Student w/proof (Student ID)
Space limited, registration required: http://oaag.org/programs/index.html

This OAAG workshop will focus on gallery acquisition strategies, their impact on both the institution and donor, and accession procedures. We will examine how to strategically accept and decline acquisitions based on the gallery’s mandate and limitations through peer-to-peer discussions and practicum. After this workshop, participants will be able to identify the different types of acquisitions, determine gaps in permanent collections, understand how to fill these gaps through acquisitions, the procedures behind accepting an acquisition, donation strategies, bequests, and how to maintain donor relations from the perspective of the institution. Participants will leave the workshop  with comprehensive knowledge of the legal attributes of accepting donations, receipting, and determining donation values.
