Our lease has expired and we've had to leave our space at 624 Richmond West. What a joy it has been to have 2400 sq. ft and multiple levels at my disposal: so unusual for a gallery in the downtown core, and perfectly suited to programming double and triple solo shows with inter-related themes. Sad, but such is the ebb and flow of urban development. When Crate 'n' Barrel and Joe Fresh move in, you know that the days of the galleries are numbered.
Moos Gallery will be leaving as well. Walter Moos has been in the business for 52 years, and on Richmond for 13 years. He's remarkable gentleman, and it's been an honour to be his neighbour.
We'll be in Montreal in next week, with a booth at Papier 12. I am looking forward to blogging from our rented apartment in Mile End!
