Surface Gallery is run by a committed group of volunteers who give their time to deliver an experimental and innovative programme of contemporary exhibitions, events and community engagement programmes. Surface Gallery exists to support the development of early and mid-career artists, curators and those wishing to work in the arts. Our independence and the freedom to develop artist-led projects, local community activities and the continuation of volunteer-led exhibitions and residencies are highly important to us, which is why Surface Gallery seeks funding for specific exhibitions and events rather than relying on long-term financial support.
A one off donation of just a few pounds or a regular donation of as little as £2 per month will make a big difference to the work we do with artists and the exhibitions that we deliver. Your donation will go towards:
- Delivering an inspiring exhibitions programme
- Supporting the development of aspiring artists and arts professionals
- Refurbishing the exhibitions space
- Purchasing new equipment
Ways to Donate:
Donate online via PayPal:
If you would prefer to donate via cheque, please make it payable to Surface Gallery Ltd. Donations can be delivered in person during gallery opening times or sent to: Surface Gallery, 16 Southwell Road, Nottingham, NG1 1DL.

- Arts Council England: Igniting Ambition
- Arts Council England: Grants for the Arts
Support in Kind
If you’d rather support Surface Gallery in other ways, donations in kind are a great way to help our resources go further. There are many ways that both individuals and businesses can offer practical help, from as little as providing nibbles or refreshments during exhibition previews to donating office furniture and equipment.
We have a short wishlist that is regularly updated to reflect the gallery’s current needs, which you can download here: SurfaceGalleryWishlist.pdf. However please note that this list is not intended to be exhaustive, and if you would like to support us in a different way please contact our Funding team who will be happy to discuss this with you at or call 0115 947 0793.
