Know Before You Go – COVID-19 Guidelines

Our goal is to ensure that you can immerse yourself in art and art experiences in the safest space possible. Please review the following guidelines:

  • The use of a non-medical mask is not mandatory during your visit; however, we encourage those who feel more comfortable to wear a mask to do so. You may see some staff and volunteers wearing a mask while others may choose not to.
  • Capacity limits and physical distancing is not required; however, we ask that visitors are mindful of their surroundings and respect the comfort levels fellow visitors, staff and volunteers.
  • Hand sanitizing stations continue to be available and cleaning efforts in public areas and high touch surfaces maintain a priority.
  • We are committed to continue assessing these guidelines and implement changes for visitor and staff safety as Public Health guidelines change.


All areas of the Yarmouth Gallery are accessible.
