Both the Brock and Lakeshore entrances will be open July 2, 2020 at 12 PM.
The number of visitors allowed in the AGB at once will be limited to enable social distancing. Please abide by maximum visitor limits in each space as posted. Occasionally you may experience a short wait-time before you can enter a room.
Wearing a mask or face shield is recommended as some passageways are not conducive to physical distancing.
No food or drink is permitted in the gallery.
At this time, our studios will be available exclusively to members of the Guilds of Arts Burlington and by appointment only.
Steps we’re taking to Ensure your Visit is Safe:
Hand sanitizer is available at all entrances and exits for public use. Additional hand sanitizer stations can be found in visible locations though out the building.
All facilities, studios, exhibitions, and washrooms have a frequent regular sanitization routine (high touch zones).
We will disinfect electronic devices, equipment, keys (terminals, POS,etc.), items, and packaging in the shop after each use.
The AGB is committed to doing our part to protect the health and wellbeing of our community, and we are grateful for your continued support and understanding during this time.
Exhibitions to see at the AGB:
Foreign Affairs Start date: February 8, 2020 – End date: September 6, 2020
The friendship between the Japanese artist Shoji Hamada and English potter Bernard Leach re-introduced the traditions of handmade functional ceramics to the modern world.
Aesthetics of the Archives Start date: March 7, 2020 – End date: August 23, 2020
Aesthetics of the Archives explores the Caribbean and European ancestry of Canadian Artist/Researcher Desmond A. Miller. Through a focus on his paternal family’s location within the Black Diaspora, Miller draws on personal, family and institutional archives to create representations of family elders. In Aesthetics of the Archives, he uses poetry, photography, and textiles to disrupt linear ideas of time, trouble fixed notions of archives and invite pathways for being in good relation with the other-than-human world.
