Major DMV Gallery to close

Have heard from a couple of artists that a major DMV area gallery, which has been around for almost two decades has announced to them that it will close its physical location.

As this gallery is one of the few DMV galleries that does the major art fairs, I suspect that they will now just become an online dealer and simply continue to do the art fairs.

I think that I broke this story, but Lou Jacobson confirms it in the Washington City Paper... Fraser Gallery will close.

Update 2: Heather over at DCist gets the credit for breaking the story... see it here.

Update 3:
artdc has an interesting string of artists' comments about Fraser closing; read them here.
