The Art Speaks Gallery is opening Tuesday! May 15 2020, 0 Comments

The Bay School is excited to welcome visitors back to the Art Speaks Gallery, starting Tuesday, May 19. The gallery will be open limited hours during Virginia’s Phase One of Re-opening, Tuesday – Friday, noon – 4pm, and Saturdays by appointment. Staff and visitor safety and comfort are the highest priority, so the gallery will be limited to ten guests at a time, and face masks will be mandatory for staff and visitors. A hand sanitization station will be at the front door. Guests are asked to please sanitize their hands upon entering the gallery, and to refrain from touching any artwork or objects. Staff will be happy to assist customers with items they are interested in purchasing. Guests are also asked to maintain appropriate social distancing between parties while in the gallery or on the patio. During Phase One, visitors will not be allowed to bring in food or drink and will not be allowed to use the Bay School’s restroom. The Bay School plans to maintain these hours and guidelines as long as Phase One lasts, but may adjust as needed. The school’s website, social media, and outgoing phone message will have the current open hours listed.

The spring gallery exhibition, Sculpture and Garden Art, has been extended to June 23. Viewing and purchasing will still be available online for those who are not yet ready to venture out. Curbside pick-up and free local delivery will continue to be options, along with shipping. The gallery will be hosting pop-up sales featuring gifts for graduates and Father’s Day over the next few weeks. Gib Pulley is the May featured Artist of the Month, and her watercolor paintings can be found in the gallery and online. Gib will be in the gallery Tuesday morning, May 19 at 11:00 to record a live Facebook talk about her work.
