Gallery Close Down 9 March - 5 June

Shoalhaven Regional Gallery will be closed to the public from the 9th March 2020 as we install our new air-conditioning system. This work will bring the galleries up to national standard and enhance our opportunities to exhibit works from State and National collections. Many thanks to Create NSW and the Regional Cultural Fund for assisting in funding for this important upgrade.

While the Gallery is closed, we are looking at a range of digital initiatives that will help you to get your art fix while we are unable to offer regular public programs. Keep an eye on our digital platforms to catch collection insights, art tips and kids’ activities.

Shoalhaven Regional Art Gallery’s Response to COVID-19

Given the current government recommendations, and in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we are taking steps to minimise the risks imposed on our community, our artists and our staff. As such we will not be proceeding with planned events including Art After School, Artways on Wednesday, School Holiday art classes or the artist led workshops until the Gallery re-opens on the 6th June.

This decision takes place as of Monday 23rd March. We intend to reschedule the artist led workshops, and will restart our regular weekly classes as soon as possible.

As you will already know, Shoalhaven Regional Gallery is closed for major works. Our scheduled re-opening is the 6th June. We will be undertaking some exciting digital interactions in the coming weeks. Look out for us on Facebook and Instagram as we share insights into our collection and some fun art activities you can do at home.

By exercising these measures, we wish only to contribute to the safety of our community. We look forward to welcoming you back to the galleries and our programs on re-opening and thank you for your understanding.
