The Kamloops Art Gallery will reopen on July 7 with two new exhibitions and a host of measures to keep gallery viewers and staff safe.

The two new exhibits are Donald Lawrence: Casting the Eye Adrift and Anyssa Fortie: Pleasant Field. Lawrence's work brings together sculpture, video, photography, drawings and ephemeral works at the intersection of art, science and technology, while Fortie's exhibit features paintings and sculpture that create "a landscape of memories."

The gallery, and its store, will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday, with Thursday admission free by sponsor BCLC.

Visitors will be greeted at the welcome desk and learn about the safety protocols, including a mandatory two-metre distancing between people, with family groups staying together and children remaining with adults at all times. Hand sanitization stations have been placed at various locations inside and high touch points are cleaned after use.

The gallery has also installed plexiglass barriers at the admissions desk and put down floor labels.

The gallery is also inviting feedback as it continues to adapt as needed. Comments and inquiries can be made by email at kamloopsartgallery@kag.bc.ca.
