Blenheim Gallery has been planning precautionary measures during this time of unexpected difficulty and we wish to protect all our clients, artists and visitors from the spread of COVID – 19. To that end we will remain open to the public normal trading hours to see the closure of Carlton Cox’s exhibition of linocuts on the 27 March.
At that time for those who wish to collect works or have delivered works it still can happen.
We will move to our online exhibitions planned for through the winter months. We have decided to bring them forward to commence immediately after the Easter break.
The gallery and the sculptures in the garden surrounding the gallery will be available for viewing by appointment. To meet with the Australian Department of Health recommendations due consideration will be given to social distancing of 1.5m.
This is a time like so many other industries and sectors across Australia that will require ongoing support, many major art events have been cancelled or deferred and the artist sector still needs to flourish.
The digital space is a resource and used regularly in Blenheim Gallery’s daily marketing practise.

These marketing tools will help to address those artists who have prepared works in for exhibitions. We foresee this period could be throughout the winter, but we will review. There is the ability to acquire things you like.
An online catalogue and invitation will be provided, and we still will be at the gallery and at the end of the phone and email to receive correspondence and to take your calls whether for an appointment or for other reasons.
Our exhibition calendar for the immediate future:
Carlton Cox Close to Home and Far Away Linocuts – 27 March 2020
