As we send this out to you, we are living in uncertain times which makes future planning challenging. Our latest news is that yet again we have had to close the Gallery. We are not sure for how long, but we are hoping that with the vaccine underway, we may be able to do our MAP show as promised in April. We will update you as soon as we know more.
Due to the recent government information on Covid-19, the gallery will be remaining closed until further notice due to Tier 4 restrictions. We will update the website when we have any more news on reopening. All enquires to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Fishslab Gallery will be temporarily closed from 20th December 2020, following coronavirus restrictions. We hope everyone stays safe and has a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. email@example.com

Last year we received some feedback that the process of booking on 1st August is very difficult as the phone is constantly engaged; we appreciate how frustrating this is and have considered if there are better options available to us.However, we have decided that this remains the fairest and simplest process and therefore it will continue unchanged.We apologise in advance if you are unable to get through but can reassure you that calls are answered in the order they are received so it really is just about luck!
We hope that we will receive lots of interest for 2021, thank you for your continued support of the gallery as exhibitors and visitors.Please note, when we had to close in 2020 many artists were unable to exhibit.To recognise this they have been given the opportunity to pre-book for 2021; this means we have fewer weeks available than normal and expect to be fully booked even quicker.We will keep our website updated with the status of bookings.
