Plan Your Visit to Gallery Aferro

There is so much to do at Gallery Aferro! We have a large facility comprised of two (2) exhibition spaces, three (3) permanent sound installations, a Community Book Room and an Art Shop that offers — in addition to artworks — books, prints, music, postcards, buttons, posters, T-shirts, and more. 

Gallery Aferro is committed to providing an environment that ensures the health and safety of visitors, residents and staff, so the following safety measures have been implemented and carried out as needed since June 16th, 2021. 

  • Regardless of vaccination status, Gallery Aferro requires all visitors ages 4 and up to wear a mask, face shield, or solid face covering over their nose and mouth for the duration of their visit. If you do not have a mask or face shield when you visit the Gallery, you may request one from a member of the staff. We have a sizable supply of CDC-approved masks and face shields available for the public, and we would be happy to provide one to you. 
  • The Gallery staff and studio residents are also required to wear masks when they are engaging in common areas (the restrooms, the office, etc.) throughout the building and are unable to practice social distancing.
  • All visitors are asked to stay at least six (6) feet apart from visitors from different households/tour groups.
  • The Gallery staff will clean and sanitize high-touch, high-traffic areas frequently throughout the day.
  • The Gallery staff will encourage frequent hand washing and provide hand-sanitizing stations throughout the building’s common areas and in the exhibition spaces.

In order to ensure the safety of our staff, residents and visitors, we are unable to accommodate your entry if you do not wear a mask or solid face covering at this time. We look forward to welcoming you back when these safety protocols are no longer necessary.

Please contact prior to your visit if you have any questions or concerns.
