We are excited to be opening to the public soon, albeit with modified hours. Beginning Thursday, August 6, our schedule is:
Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 12 noon to 4:00pm until further notice.
Hand sanitizing will be required at the door and masks are recommended. There will be a limit of 4 in the Gift Shop at one time.
During the closure, we used part of the time to put the Gift Shop online, as well as here in the Gallery. You have new options for shopping and supporting both local artisans and the gallery.
We hope this newsletter finds you healthy and well. We look forward to offering art once again to Castlegar and beyond.
Maggie Shirley, Curator/Gallery Assistant

What’s Happening Online
You can now buy many of the items from the Gallery Gift Shop online.
The website accepts most major credit cards. You can purchase and have curbside or in-store pick up (free), local delivery within 10 km of the Gallery ($5 or free for purchases $75+) or pay a fee and have it shipped via Canada Post.
At this moment, we have not identified a way to add member discounts online so please come shop in the Gallery if you want your 10% discount.
Let your friends and family from out of town know that the gorgeous gift shop you took them to when they were visiting is now available to them.
The Gift Shop in the Gallery will be open soon and we are happy to serve you here too. We are excited to offer you options in your shopping experience, especially in these physically distancing times.
