Aotearoa / New Zealand is at ORANGE in the traffic light system. What does that mean? It means we take extra precautions to keep both yourself and us safe as follows....
Mask wearing is required at the gallery. This means on your face and covering both your nose and your mouth for the duration of your time in the gallery.
Scanning is still offered and we encourage everyone to scan individually to keep accurate records. Please bring your phone to do so.
Our space is not large so we are keeping our door closed and limiting numbers in the gallery. Mostly this is easy, but there may on occasion be a short wait time. Our neighbours at Daily Daily and The Caker can supply you with goodies to keep you going and there is outside seating. If the lights are on, we are there.
We are sanitising fanatically. In fact we have enough bleach related products to turn an entire suburb blonde. Being a gallery, we don't have a lot of touch surfaces, but we will be regularly sanitising those that we do have. Catalogue lists will be on the wall or printed to order to avoid sharing.
We have made the decision too, that we will not be running public opening events for the forseeable future while we are working our way through the omicron outbreak. The space is tight, people are hard to trace and we can't hug and kiss people as we would like to after not seeing you all for so long. But do pop in to see the art and say hi regardless. We'd love to see you. We will try to do some interesting online content for each show to make up for it.
Like the government and their health / science advisors, we will be updating and reviewing these requirements as things evolve. Please get in touch if you have any concerns or queries. We are happy to meet you by appointment outside of gallery hours too if you would prefer a dedicated private viewing time.
Thank you for your support of the gallery and our artists. Stay safe Aotearoa. Kia Kaha.
