Gallery 62 West reopens with social distancing guidelines


GRAFTON, W.Va. – Gallery 62 West reopened its doors Friday, after being closed for nearly four months due to the pandemic.

The gallery, which showcases local and nationally known works of art has implemented rules to keep visitors safe including, no more than 10 people allowed in the gallery at one time, mandatory face-masks, available hand sanitizers , and floor markers to help keep people at a safe distance from each other.

“It’s just a place where people can come in and see art and artist can show their work. You know, this is such a down time for artist because they can’t exhibit their work. So, we are always glad to promote the artist and the art that is within our area,” said Mary Shuttlesworth, member of the Taylor County Arts Council.  

Also, Gallery 62 West is open on Friday’s and Saturdays from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. The gallery will be closed for the Fourth of July holiday.
