Wearing masks and disinfecting your hands with sanitizer will be required upon entry to the gallery. Maintaining physical distancing of at least two meters from other guests and gallery staff is required. If you or anyone in your bubble is experiencing symptoms of Covid 19 or have traveled outside of British Columbia in the last 14 days, we ask that you stay home. Appointments must be rescheduled. The gallery will be cleaned daily and high touch surfaces will be wiped down between visits. We welcome you to reach out to us with any questions. Our expanded Safety Plan can be viewed here.
