Just about the time the lease was
expiring on the building, the
manager decided to leave, and
there were personal considera-
tions. For a time, the partners
had been noting that the market
for art was not growing.
"We will miss representing those
talented artists whose work we
were able to show," says Ross, who
had been employed, in a gallery
before opening Sybaris. The
work we had on view made us see
things in different ways, and we've
always appreciated that."
Both owners, also collectors,
wish that more people in the com-
munity would visit galleries and
support the arts. Actually, that's
what they intend to do. After the
ery is closed, they plan on reg-
ularly visiting the places they have
missed because of their own busi-
ness commitments.
"We have offered to find other
galleries to represent the artists who
have shown their work through
us," Selik says. "We also will be
looking into curating exhibits."
