WANGARATTA ART GALLERY – UPDATE – COVID 19 – AUGUST 5, 2020
To our valued community, supporters and members, Wangaratta Art Gallery will temporarily closed to the public from 4pm Wednesday August 5, until further notice.
This is in response to the return to the State Government COVID Safe restrictions of Stage 3 for regional Victoria.
All gallery programs will be on hold during the closure period, during this time gallery staff are making every effort to adapt our exhibitions, educational and public programs to be made available on-line. Please be sure to explore our website exhibition and program pages and watch our social media platforms to keep up to date.
The decision to suspend events at the gallery is based on advice issued by health authorities in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community, protect our staff, our artists and visitors, and to play our role in Australia’s response to limiting transmission.
We are facing an unprecedented challenge – and we must do everything in our power to flatten the curve of COVID-19. A decision on any potential further closure will take into consideration developments in the COVID-19 situation.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this rapidly developing situation.
Stay safe and please keep in touch for announcements of our re-open dates, we can’t wait to welcome you back.
