We care about you. We care about you, the Artists we represent and our community. We’re doing our best to keep everyone safe.
What you need to know about West End Gallery’s business operations: The Gallery is now open for in store visits! We are currently in “Phase II Reopening” in NYS. We submitted our Reopening Business Affirmation on 5/16/20 and created our “NY Forward Business Reopening Safety Plan” which is available for all visitors to review.
We are available by phone, email and we’re now open for visits to the Gallery! We are also offering Private Appointments.
Upon arrival at the Gallery, we are requiring that visitors please: – Wear a face covering that covers the mouth and nose for the duration of the visit – Use the provided hand sanitizer at either entrance station – Maintain minimum 6′ social/physical distance during the visit
Are we cancelling any upcoming events? No. Our events will be modified. We are proceeding with our 2020 Exhibit Schedule modifying all previously scheduled events. In lieu of our traditional Opening Receptions we are extending the celebration on Opening Day from Noon – 7:30 pm. We are staggering all visits and limiting appointments to groups of 10 or fewer guests for the time being. Private appointments are also available.
You can still enjoy the exhibit from home. We will post the exhibit online the same day the exhibit opens. Afterall, the show must go on…online!
