Arts Alliance Votes to Close Gallery

Arts Alliance Votes to Close Gallery

Monroe County Arts Alliance voted to close the art gallery at a March meeting.

That's according to the group's Facebook page.

They say the funds dropped so low it was impossible to keep the gallery open "due to lack of support, interest, and participation."

The Arts Alliance will still meet, and needs officers.

The gallery will be closed and empty by April 26.
