Posted Monday 20 July, 10:51am

Ararat Gallery TAMA has reopened to the public today, with coronavirus guidelines in place to ensure everyone’s health and safety.

The Gallery is opening with one new exhibition, Inga Hunter: Works from the TAMA Collection. Also showing are two returning exhibitions – a series of Lionel Lindsay’s sketches, and Collected, Saved and Combined, a range of textile pieces from the TAMA collection.

Ararat Rural City Council CEO Dr Tim Harrison said Gallery staff had worked hard behind the scenes to ensure the facility is a safe place for everyone to visit.

Dr Harrison said this included installing hand sanitising stations and signage with social distancing and other rules clearly explained.

Floor stickers have also been installed to ensure people keep 1.5m away from each other, and the names and contact details of all visitors will be taken to help with contact tracing should an outbreak occur.

Groups of 8 or more are required to book before they arrive – please call the Gallery on 5355 0220.

“We want to reassure the community that staff are following all the rules to ensure the Gallery is a safe place to visit,” he said.

“Ararat Gallery TAMA and Council would like to invite the community back to the Gallery – we would love to see you some time soon.”
