Bare Hands to go out with a BANG!

Bare Hands Gallery logo Bare Hands Gallery announced Monday morning via its website, emails and its Facebook fan page that it will cease operations effective Thursday, December 30, 2010. The gallery has operated on Richard Arrington, Jr. Blvd. for the last 14 ½ years.

The gallery’s final exhibition will be SHINE 2010 – Going Out with a BANG!, taking place from Friday, December 3 until the 30th.

It had been enjoying a busy year, including its 14th anniversary celebration in June and continued support from the community.  The gallery’s board however that the non-profit organization was not sustainable given the present economic climate.

The annual Day of the Dead event will continue as its own separate non-profit organization, Day of the Dead Alabama, according to the posted statement. The Birmingham News has already posted a story about this morning’s announcement.

Random Shots: a snapshot of Birmingham

Bob Farley/f8PhotoA few weeks ago we posted some photos from the Lyric Theatre in advance of the open house and included a photo of a mural of the city that was being stored in the building (it’s image #9).

Well, the centennial mural’s four pieces have been moved to the new home of the Birmingham Jefferson History Museum at the former Young & Vann building downtown. They were so large they had to open up the wall to get it into its new home. The Terminal‘s Bob Farley took a closer look at the mural and provided these photos to share with you in The Gallery. According to their website, we’ll get a chance to take a closer look in person come next spring.
