A virtual tour of the Society of Bluffton Artists gallery, showcasing the latest art on exhibit, will take place 11 a.m. May 28.
The Society of Bluffton Artists Gallery (SOBA) opened with limited hours and crowd restrictions. The gallery and the Center for Creative Arts has been closed since March due to coronavirus restrictions.
“Because of our current situation with the virus we are adopting the recommendations of the Hilton Head/Bluffton Chamber of Commerce,” said Linda Hilts, a SOBA board member. “And we have put in place some additional guidelines that staffers will have to abide by to keep everyone safe.”
The gallery will operate with limited hours — from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Thursday-Saturday with a limit of six people at a time in the gallery. In keeping with the social distancing best practices, we ask visitors to stay six feet apart. Volunteer staffers will be wearing masks, gloves and washing their hands frequently. Other precautionary measures will include daily cleaning and sanitizing of the gallery’s high frequency touch points.
