The Bas is Closed

until further notice

In light of the rapidly unfolding COVID-19 situation and after much consideration we have decided to close the Bas until further notice. This decision follows the suspension of our public programs and means the Bas will no longer be open to public and all scheduled opening nights, artist talks, workshops and tours have been cancelled.

This is a massive blow to our programming which was underpinning our community recovery after the recent bushfires that saw 80% of our shire directly impacted. However, the health and safety of staff, volunteers and visitors to the Bas is the new priority as we take action to minimise the spread of COVID-19.

We are committed to our program and we will work directly with all impacted artists and facilitators. Over the coming weeks we will publish content to engage audiences and provide digital access to our current exhibition. Please follow us on Instagram and Facebook for updates.

If you’re an artist or organisation please participate in the National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA) survey COVID-19 Arts Impacts Survey which will assit NAVA in advocating policy and funding responses at a state and federal level.

The Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre recognises Aboriginal people as the original inhabitants and custodians of all land and water in the Eurobodalla and respects their enduring cultural and spiritual connection to it. The Bas acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land in which we live and pays respect to Elders past, present and future.
