Based on the most recent advisory from Public Health we will be tracking attendance to ensure that we are following the Public Health social distancing guidelines. Currently, it is safe to visit the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, and experience the comfort art can provide during challenging times.

We are committed to the health and safety of our staff and community, and in response to the current public health situation surrounding COVID-19, we are following the guidelines of the Public Health Agency of Canada. We have enhanced and increased our cleaning measures including sterilization of high traffic areas and installation of new hand sanitizer units around the building.

We are continuously monitoring this rapidly evolving situation and remain responsive to the recommendations surrounding the enjoyment of public spaces. Currently, it is safe to visit the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. We ask that our visitors observe the Public Health recommendations, which include frequent hand washing, coughing or sneezing into your elbow, and refraining from visiting the Gallery if you are unwell or have reason to believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19. For more information on public health recommendations in New Brunswick, see here.

Based on the most recent advisory from Public Health, we will be cancelling the March Family Art Day on March 29. All other events and activities will be continuing until further notice. Our facility is large enough to allow visitors to enjoy the exhibitions and programs while still practising social distancing.

If circumstances change, we will post updates to our website and social media channels.


Thank you and take care,

Tom Smart
Director/ CEO
