First of all, and unless we are expressly requested by the Authorities to shut down, the gallery will remain, for the time being, OPEN as per our usual opening hours. However, we are aware that the current Coronovirus Covid 19 pandemy is both a serious and worrying situation.
We therefore wish to reassure all our clients and visitors that we are doing the utmost best to keep everyone safe. Please find below the measures which we will be put into place immediately:
- Visitors to be allowed in the gallery, no more than 2 or 3 at a time
- Visitors to be reminded of keeping their distance from other people at all time (2m has been recommended)
- Visitors will be invited not to personally touch the artworks. Instead, the gallery owner would move the artwork at the request of the client/visitor (the gallery owner will be wearing surgical gloves to do so).
- Hand disinfectant to be offered to all visitors coming into the gallery
Myself, Virginie Renard, or my partner Stephen Whitehorne will adhere to the following:
- Wash hands regularly throughout the day
- Clean and disinfect all equipment used by us such as telephone, laptop, personal mobile phone on a daily basis
- Avoid all physical contact with customers, visitors, suppliers
- Ensure a minimum of 2 m distance between us and any other person
- Our CAFÉ to be shut for the time being
- In addition to our customary high standards of hygiene, we’ve implemented the following heightened cleaning regime of public areas :
- Entrance door glass and handle to be wiped down after each visit with disinfecting spray.
- Our bathroom area to be cleaned and disinfected daily (every 2 hours) and after each use
FINALLY, we at The White Fox Gallery are grateful for your support, without which we could not continue operating. We therefore sincerely hope that you continue visiting us, during these trying times. Rest assured that we are continually monitoring advice given from Health Protection Scotland, The Worldwide Health Organisation as well as the UK Government and will be adjusting our practices to meet the latest recommendations and to ensure that we all remain safe!
LOOKING FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU AGAIN SOON AT THE WHITE FOX GALLERY – NOTHING BETTER THAN ART TO UPLIFT THE SPIRIT!
Wishing you all the best,
Virginie and Stephen
