Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton to reopen after lockdown with guided tours

The Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG) in Honiton is gearing up to reopen its doors on Saturday, July 11, with guided tours and new hours.

The gallery, which closed its doors to the public when the UK was forced into lockdown by the coronavirus, will celebrate opening with the relaunch of the exhibition: Artist Room: Richard Long Being in the Moment.

The gallery has measures in place to ensure the safety of visitors and staff following government guidelines.

Individuals and households of up to four people will be able to book a guided tour of the current exhibition (up to 45 minutes).

Some six tours will take place each day. The tour will include the gallery shop. There are no toilet facilities.

THG’s new opening hours are Thursday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm.

The gallery continues to encourage everyone to enjoy its wild art garden for picnics, sketching or their general wellbeing.

For those staying at home, THG will shortly announce how it is taking nature and culture on tour in a Recovery Roadshow, with its new creative cabin.

The aim is to ‘engage both rural and urban audiences with art activities, projects, talks, performances and workshops to support their health, wellbeing and the environment’.

Ruth Gooding, THG curator, said: “We think visitors will enjoy the extra special tour experience where you can take your time to enjoy the works in our peaceful galleries.

“This is a critical time for THG and we will be playing a leading role in responding to and caring for our communities.

“We can’t wait to get out and about and meet communities across East Devon in the creative cabin.”

To book a guided tour, or for more information, call the gallery on 01404 45006.
