    Can you please let me know when you will be opening the shop at the Forks. I am a volunteer with the WAG and was doing a shift on Saturday from 12-3 pm at the Forks. The shop was closed last Saturday. Will it be closed for the foreseeable future?

      Hi Diane,

      Thank you for being a WAG-Qaumajuq volunteer! Both of our Shop locations are temporarily closed for in-store shopping. Curb-side pick-up is available at our Gallery location, Tuesday-Friday, 11am-5pm. We anticipate re-opening both locations once restrictions ease up a bit!

      Unfortunately, restrictions for galleries and museums have not been lifted yet, but fingers crossed we can open soon!
