The NAGN will be extending its hours for the month of April 2019 to keep the gallery open for a longer period of time. This is to allow for those that cannot visit the NAGN during 08H00 to 17H0 when they are at work or school or busy with the daily routine.
The new hours are Monday 14H00 to 19H00, Tuesday to Friday 08H00 to 19H00 and Saturday 09H00 to 14H00. The NAGN will then resume to normal working hours from 1 May and the hours will be back to Monday 14H00 to 17H00, Tuesday to Friday 08H00 to 17H00 and Saturday 09H00 to 14H00.
The 2019 April extended hours serves as a trial period to analyze the response from the public, thereafter depending on the analysis, the NAGN intends to extend hours throughout the year except for the winter season.
The NAGN will also look into extending the hours for Saturday and this will be communicated to the public once a decision has been made.
The extended hours are also a measure to comply with international gallery hour’s rate. This whole exercise is geared towards efforts in carrying out its mandate of providing dedicated space for the celebration, preserving and promotion of the visual art industry.
