Relaxed Receptions

A relaxed reception is designed to create a welcoming space for all visitors, including those who benefit from a less restricted gallery environment. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement within the Gallery and visitors are encouraged to come and go from the event as needed. All MSVU Gallery events and receptions take this format unless otherwise noted.
