SARJEANT ON THE QUAY REOPENING
Now we are moving to level two it means that Sarjeant on the Quay will be able to reopen to the public this Thursday 14 May. Staff will be returning to work, the shop will be open, and the Whanganui Arts Review and pattillo project will be open for viewing. (The iSite Gallery will remain closed until Saturday 6 June)
As usual Sarjeant on the Quay will be open every day from 10.30am until 4.30pm. Please come and visit! Provision has been made for social distancing including creating new flow ways around potential bottle necks; there will be processes for contact tracing in place and hand sanitizers will be available.
NEW COLLECTION DATES FOR THE WHANGANUI ARTS REVIEW
The final day of the Arts Review exhibition was originally planned to be Sunday 17 May, but it has been decided to extend the exhibition period until Sunday 14 June.
This in turn pushes back the Arts Review collection date which you may have noted on your diary as Monday 18 May. Arts Review collection will now be as follows:
For those with surnames beginning A – M – please come to Sarjeant on the Quay on Monday 15 June between 10.30am – 4.30pm
For those with surnames beginning N – Z – please come to Sarjeant on the Quay on Tuesday 16 June 10.30am – 4.30pm
We have broken the Arts Review collection into two days in order to reduce the number of people in the gallery. We of course understand if one day is better than the other for you and you can swap days without checking with us. We will be regulating entry in and out of the gallery and watchful about social distancing and groupings.
It may be, that due to age or health reasons, some people will need to send a representative to collect artworks on behalf. This is no problem. Just please ensure your representative has a note from the artist, stating representative name, the artwork title, artist name and signature so we can compare and keep for our records. Also be aware that this representative will need to sign the condition report on your behalf too.
It will be fantastic to be able to see the Arts Review again! We hope you all come back to enjoy it. There will be an advertisement in Thursday’s Chronicle to let the public know of the date extension and we are also publicising this via social media.
If you have any worries about any element of the Arts Review collection process, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Regards from all your friends at the Sarjeant Gallery.
