Welcome back!

The Visual Arts team is delighted to announce the re-opening of the gallery from Monday 5 October. We have scheduled three contrasting exhibitions for this autumn and begin with a collaboration from Artwork Together, three local artists who work in different media in order to present a common theme. Their theme for our re-opening is Change and the works showcase their response to the changing moods of Steart Marshes in their chosen medium.

We have put in place some additional measures for your safety and the safety of our staff.

Social distancing
In order to maintain social distancing numbers in the gallery will be carefully regulated and it may be necessary to ask you to queue outside at busy times.

Contact tracing
When you arrive in the gallery we will ask for details of how to contact you should an infection be reported. This is in line with the national contact tracing policy and the information will be destroyed after 21 days and not used for any other purpose.

Face coverings
For your safety and the safety of other visitors and staff we request that you wear a face covering during your visit unless you are exempt; this follows current government guidelines. If you’re feeling unwell or if you or anyone you live with displays symptoms associated with COVID-19, please
delay your visit until it is safe to do so.

Hand sanitiser
Hand sanitiser will be available at the entry to the gallery and other locations for your use.

The exterior door to the building will remain open and windows opened where possible to facilitate maximum air flow.

Increased cleaning
In order to clean more thoroughly and more frequently we have limited the use of our toilet facilities to the one disabled toilet.

Protection for our staff and volunteers
Personal protective equipment has been introduced for our staff, including a screen at reception, face masks and gloves.

We will not be selling drinks or snacks from the coffee bar and ask you not to consume or share unwrapped food while you are in the gallery.

We thank you in anticipation of your understanding and cooperation, and hope you enjoy your visit.
