With a bitter sweet feeling in my heart, I am announcing that I will be closing my physical gallery space as of July 31, 2019.

The good news is, I will definitely still be very active in my art consulting creating art environments for businesses and personal homes, managing public art events like the NewBo Art Fest, 2x2xU Public Art Event the Overalls All Over event and curating pop-up shows.

The biggest shift in my art gallery/consulting business is that I am going to create a more robust Black Earth Gallery website through aggressive social media marketing and targeted online advertising. I feel this is the wave of the future for art sales. So starting in August 2019, I will be working from home or planting myself at a NewBo coffee shop or in Lu’s Deli (eating donuts lol) and hopefully joining you for a good martini often. I am sorry for the inconvenience this causes – it makes me deeply sad. Do know I appreciate your dedication, support and fun all these years and hope our time together has been mutually beneficial. Stay tuned! And follow Black Earth Gallery on FaceBook and Instagram.
