FLG response to Covid-19
Dear Friends of FLG, FLG’s priority is to protect and safeguard our visitors and staff and as such we are taking the precautionary measure to close the Gallery from Wednesday 18 March to support wider efforts to contain COVID–19 in our community. We will provide updates regarding our return to operations (including future exhibitions and programs) via our website, e-communications and through social media channels over the coming weeks as the situation evolves and in response to Government advice. Remember this too will pass. In the meantime, look out for those less fortunate and call to check on your friends and neighbours who may need some help, even if it’s just a roll of loo paper. Stay safe & be thoughtful – we are all in this together. Claire, Taryn, Phe & Bridie
