Guidance for Visiting our galleries

We are asking for full proof of vaccination for the COVID-19 virus for in person viewings. Our two locations (Edmonton, AB & Victoria, B.C.) are open to for business at a limited visitor capacity.

The West End Gallery in Edmonton, Alberta and Victora, British Columbia, continues to be a safe and welcoming private business that strictly adheres to Federal and Provincial COVID-19 reduction protocols. Our space is a second home for our staff, and their physical and mental health is our top priority. We take pride in our patrons' well-being who visit our art galleries, and we have taken the following steps to ensure safe in-person viewings at our galleries:

• Visitors must produce their Covid-19 QR code before entering
• Correctly wear a face mask covering the nose and mouth
• Sanitize hands upon entry
• Maintain a 2 m physical distance between other patrons and staff
• Follow all instructions by our management and staff regarding occupancy limits

Visitors who do not wish to share our vision for a safe environment for our staff may not enter our private property. Shopping by way of our website and curbside pickup can be arranged.

We thank you for supporting our staff, artists and small business.
