Covid 19

A huge thank you to all our customers who have continued to support us. From Thursday the 14th of May we re-open our doors to the public. We will be available for new framing work, frame restoration and recycling, frame resurfacing, glass replacement, art sales and art installation – in other words, all those improvements to your art collection that you identified during your weeks in lockdown. While gallery openings will continue to be on hold, we will be relaunching our exhibition programme early June.

As we enter Level 2 we will follow all Ministry of Health health and safety guidelines to keep our customers and staff safe. If you any queries about these, please do not hesitate to call.

    We will require all customers to sign a register at the counter on entering the shop. Please note, this information will not be used for marketing.
    Contactless pick up of completed work from City Art Depot will remain available for those needing to remain in their bubble. We will continue to offer free delivery ­– and pick up – within Christchurch city.
    Our current shop hours of 9-4 Monday to Friday will be maintained for the meantime. Staff are available during those hours to answer any queries by phone or at the counter.
    Our staff are committed to hand hygiene and hand sanitiser is readily available throughout the workshop and at the counter. Staff will be sanitising all service areas, the eftpos machine and other surfaces after use and daily. Pens too will be sanitised regularly – but please feel free to use your own.
    To keep within social distancing requirements, we will be managing the number of customers allowed in the gallery at any one time. Alternatively, feel free to call us to arrange a time to come in or to make a time for us to come to you.
    If you are feeling unwell or showing any flu-like symptoms, please stay at home and look after yourself.

Please feel free to phone, email or drop in any time and we look forward to seeing you at City Art Depot soon.
