The Volunteer Committee of the Grimsby Public Art Gallery is an autonomous body organized to promote interest in and provide volunteer services, fund-raising and moral support for the Art Gallery.
Join the volunteers at the GPAG as they work to support the Gallery and its various activities. You can choose the activity that best suits your interest and time available while making new friends who share with you the desire to make the Gallery the best it can be.
