Friends of MGA Inc

Friends of MGA Inc. is a community of passionate supporters of photography in Australia and is integral to the success of the MGA. Members are part of a social network that organises events and raises funds to support the continued growth of our great gallery. 

Friends create many opportunities for members of the MGA community to come together. These include monthly Morning Coffees and Supper Talks with refreshments and an entertaining presentation by a guest speaker. Friends also organise regular events and after-hours functions as well as the summer community festival Twilight art in the park.
