Say goodbye to RedSky

Posted By on Mon, Jan 13, 2014 at 1:42 PM

The folks at RedSky Gallery in Elizabeth have announced they will be closing shop on Feb. 8. The gallery opened in 2011 and expanded with now-defunct locations in Dilworth and EpiCentre. Owner Kellie Scott says the gallery closing comes as the result of both the economy and changing consumer needs.

"These changes have had a significant effect on the gallery," says Scott. "We face competition from the Internet and the trend of artists selling directly and on-line. Many of our loyal clients have houses bursting at the seams with art and at the same time the younger generation doesn't always appreciate the difference between something handmade and something offered by places like Crate and Barrel and HomeGoods. Bottom line, we just don't see the demand we used to."

The gallery's final exhibit, with new works by potter Greg Scott and sculptor Peter Rubino, will kick off on Jan. 17 with a reception from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Following the gallery's close, the works will be moved to Clayworks Studio, where they can be viewed.

Everything in RedSky Gallery, including paintings, sculptures, glass works and more, will be 30 percent off beginning Jan. 20. Scott also said that display cases and other items needed for a retail store will be for sale.

Free admission. Gallery hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. RedSky Gallery, 1523 Elizabeth Ave., Suite 120. 704-377-6400.
