Another Gallery Closing in Phoenix

This is so sad. I’ve lost count of the galleries that have closed in the last few years. Chartreuse was very well respected, a must see destination on Grand Ave on first and third Friday art walk nights. We will miss gallerist Nancy Hill’s well chosen shows.

Chartreuse is still open now, and will be through December.

The gallery is in the Bragg’s Pie Factory building. During earlier and current iterations of a gallery in the space, I had participated in some group shows there. Chartreuse is about a block from {9} The Gallery where I had a solo show this Sept.

It’ll be sad to walk Grand during art walks and not see Nancy’s shows after Dec. I hope that the space will be a gallery again after that. Galleries are all struggling, it seems. Even Scottsdale, the upper end of our art world here, has seen galleries close or move to Phoenix, scale back, or rent space. I may be doing a lot more sales from my studio if this keeps happening!

  1. Felt bad clicking that “Like.” 😦
    So sorry about your gallery!!! Sad, sad, sad. I hope the new owners will have a gallery, but I guess that’s not super likely?
    It’s very frustrating to have few venues for showing work.

    Have to add – those palm trees are GORGEOUS! (big fan of palm trees)
    🙂

  2. I agree, it’s sad to see Chartreuse go. Just when I thought Grand Avenue was on the uspwing….
