We Remain OPEN - Covid-19 update

Given new provincial health orders as of November 19, 2020, we have all been asked to significantly reduce our social interactions and to wear masks in public spaces.

The Kamloops Art Gallery remains open to the public and our Covid Safety Plan is in place to ensure the public is safe when visiting.

Safety measures include limiting the number of visitors in spaces, ensuring social distancing, maintaining cleaning protocols, and the wearing of masks by all staff.

We welcome you to visit the Gallery with the members of your household or core bubble. The wearing of a mask at the Gallery is now mandatory in all public areas. All our previously scheduled, face-to-face small group programs and tours have now been suspended.

The Gallery is a place of learning, solace, and contemplation, we look forward to seeing you as your circumstances allow. We encourage you to follow us on Instagram and via Facebook as online programs continue to be developed and added.

Take care, from all of us at the Kamloops Art Gallery.
