Museum Cash Register
June 29th, 2020: We are OPEN!
The TVM Art Gallery & wave are opening to support our local artists this summer. The Gallery's annual Summer Art Show & Sale will run from June 29th until August 22nd. As Blind River works to support its local merchants and owners, it is imperative our local artisans receive opportunities to sustain their craft.

We have added several tools to make your experience safer and engaging. 

  • A maximum of four guests will be permitted in the gallery at one time
  • You are encouraged to view art and process payment at wave to allow other guests to view
  • wave will have an outdoor transaction station set up to reduce traffic in the gift shop (weather permitting of course)
  • wave has a capacity of two guests and is fully stocked with updated consignment items from our local talent
  • We will happily process transactions for art via credit card, package, and promote curbside pick up
  • High contact areas will be sanitized regularly
  • Pieces may be reserved for 24 hours to allow you to call the Gallery with a credit card payment process

Timber Village Art Gallery requests the following of users:

  • Do not visit The Marine Park or TVM Gallery if you are sick
  • Please respect our capacity of four guests and plan accordingly
  • Admission is by donation, there is no need to purchase admission tickets from wave
  • Debit or Credit are preferred to reduce cash transactions
  • We encourage the use of masks

Timber Village Museum remains closed until further notice. We look forward to providing updates as we can open safely to the public.

We will be kicking off the 2020 Summer Exhibit Season with our Annual Summer Art Show & Sale!
This year's show features the artwork of 11 local artists.
