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.
At the end of March 2019 we will be relocating to our new gallery space at
Level 1 of the Nicholas Building,
Corner of Swanston St and Flinders Lane.
