The COVID-19 pandemic forced Wollongong Art Gallery to not only close its doors in late March, but adapt.
"Like many other regional galleries, what we've started to do is put stuff up online," gallery program director John Monteleone said.
"So we've actually got a video walk-through of exhibitions with a voiceover, which is on our YouTube channel.
"Although obviously nothing beats actually coming into the space and looking at the work."
Art fans should soon be able to do that, with libraries, art galleries and museums able to re-open next month.
On Wednesday, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said many cultural institutions - like museums, art galleries and libraries - will be able to open their doors, with restrictions, from June 1.
She said vulnerable people may be able to use them first, people will need to make bookings, and operators will be required to take records of people who attend.
Mr Monteleone said they had previously been hopeful of re-opening in September, if not earlier.
While pleased with this week's announcement, he said they were still awaiting the finer details.
There's a lot of unknowns. It's exciting to think things are starting to go back to some sort of 'normal', but it's not as clear-cut as we'll re-open the doors and things will be back to the way they were.
"We're waiting on council as well, because council make a determination," he said. "Even though the Premier might make an announcement, I think most councils and organisations will make a determination about their own... It'll be interesting to see when and how they'll open up.
"We don't know any detail either, so even if we do open up on the first of June, what does that mean? What will that look like? Will it be a necessity to limit the people who come in at one time?
"There's a lot of unknowns. It's exciting to think things are starting to go back to some sort of 'normal', but it's not as clear-cut as we'll re-open the doors and things will be back to the way they were."
A Wollongong City Council spokesperson said they hadn't received any formal advice, or NSW Public Health orders, regarding the potential re-opening of galleries and libraries, or the measures that would need to be in place for them to re-open such spaces.
"In the meantime, we are considering what measures we would need in place to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our staff and volunteers, their families and the community, and would ensure any steps we take are in line with any updated NSW Public Health orders.
"We know our community is keen to see these popular spaces reopen and we are working behind-the-scenes to ensure the Wollongong Art Gallery and our libraries will be able to re-open when the timing is right."
Among the exhibitions taken online is From the Room of Dorian Gray by Canberra-based artist eX de Medici. It was on display at the Wollongong gallery for just a few weeks before the venue closed, and is due to run until August 23.
"I'm pretty philosophical about things... So when it closed I just went, 'well, that's the way it's got to be, on we go'," she said.
"But it's great that people will be able to get out and go see the gallery and check out the rest of the collection.
"There's other great shows they can check out too, and they can support their local gallery."
Mr Monteleone said when the gallery was able to resume its "normal" operations, they would likely continue to post exhibitions and programs online.
"I think it's great to be able to have another platform to present our artworks online," he said.
