Despite the recent announcement of the easing of lockdown restrictions in New South Wales, the S.H. Ervin Gallery will remain closed for the time being. We are undertaking a thorough review of how we ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff and the community.

This means we will not be re-opening on 11 October 2021. As soon as our plans change and we are again able to welcome you back, we will update you. Our priority is to keep all visitors, staff and volunteers safe.
