As we all know, there has been a serious pandemic in our country (and the world) regarding the COVID-19 (a.k.a Coronavirus) outbreak.

Many states and countries have issued a mandatory quarantine for their citizens (which includes the state of Ohio.) There have also been various safety and protection protocols placed for businesses that remain open during the pandemic.

Below we have detailed and answered all questions regarding COVID-19 and the Briana D. Ashley Art Gallery, LLC.

Is the Gallery still Open for Business?

Yes, the gallery is still open for business! Due to over 80% of our sales being conducted online, we are able to continue business effectively.

Business meetings and interviews will temporarily be conducted via video chats or phone calls until the mandatory quarantine have been lifted.

If you’d like to schedule a meeting or interview with us, please Contact Us directly.

Are you still Shipping Artwork?

Yes, we are still conducting all online sales and distributions.

Artwork will still be shipped within the United States, but may be limited in some US Territories. International shipping (including Canada and Mexico) will be temporarily suspended until international trade is reopened within the United States.

As a new policy implemented during the pandemic, all artwork and shipping packaging with receive extra sanitization, alongside previous cleaning practices before shipping. With this, you can be secure knowing your artwork will be clean once you receive it.

As a safety precaution, we recommend you wash your hands after opening your shipment to ensure you and your loved ones are safe during these difficult times.

Will Briana still Participate/Host any more Art Shows for the Year?

At this moment, we do not have a solid show schedule, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many juried art shows, exhibitions, and hosted events usually cater to a public, audience gathering of over 100 people. This currently violates the current regulation regarding mass gatherings of 100 people or more to be cancelled and/or temporarily closed.

However, many local galleries and venues are hosting their juried shows digitally, rather than in-person. These digital shows also includes purchasing artwork you may like.

If the shows we have scheduled execute this new form of show attendance, Briana may still attend the show(s). To stay up-to-date on all of our events, shows, and announcements, visit our News page.

Are Sponsorships still Active?

Due to the pandemic, we have temporarily provided the general public benefits previously exclusive only to our sponsors. We have implemented the following changes during this season:

  • Timelapse videos and in-progress photos will be temporarily available to the general public,

  • Two-week early access will be suspended temporarily to allow the public to gain access to the original at the same time as our sponsors, and

  • In-person advertising (for the Artist’s Benefactor tier) will be suspended during mandatory quarantine.

If these changes are unacceptable for you, or you wish to suspend your monthly pledge for this season, you may do so at anytime. We wish to bring our digital services to all of our followers during this difficult time as to alleviate the burden that many are facing.

Currently, the quarantine does not have a specific timeline, but has been speculated to continue well into the following year. We here at the Briana D. Ashley Art Gallery are preparing for this possibility, and will update you when these changes will be lifted and resume their normal state.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. Stay safe, wash your hands, and make sure you are helping those in need in any way you can!
