We've had a couple of good galleries here in San Francisco close recently, unfortunately. We don't know the exact reasons why, but you can read thier press releases here for more infomation. Just sad to see them go.
Lake Gallery, which was upstairs of the Plant It Earth's Divisidero location, had to shut its doors since their host, Plant It Earth, is closing.
Also, sorry to hear that Michael Rosenthal Gallery is closing its Valencia location and moving south to Redwood City with their last day open on Valencia St. Saturday, June 30th. You can read both their press releases here for more information below.
From Lake Gallery
Dear friends of Lake Gallery,
It is with great sadness for me to announce that we will be shuttering for good on June 16th, 2012. Due to some relatively foreseen circumstances, our most wonderful host, Plant It Earth will be closing its Divisadero location. It is a tremendous misfortune to leave the neighborhood for all parties involved but I could not have possibly asked for a more harmonious, symbiotic arrangement, for it was quite a romantic dance. Thank you, Plant It Earth.
With that, I ask that you join us not to say goodbye but to raise a toast to all past and future endeavors. We will be having a closing event for the final exhibition at Lake Gallery, The Rumble In The Jungle, and to tip our hats to our gracious host. Please stop by for one last view Friday, June 22nd, 6-9pm. There will be some special live musical entertainment plus handshakes and embraces all 'round.
I certainly hope to work in the art community in some capacity sooner than later. Feel free to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to stay in touch and to keep me abreast.
Many, many thanks to all Lake Gallery artists, attendees, patrons, supporters and accolades...you made the dance complete.

From Michael Rosenthal Gallery
I am moving the gallery to my project space in Redwood City and will be up and running by the first of September.
This summer I will be fitting out my 2000 sf studio in Redwood City as a collaborative work space and gallery.
The move opens many options with the focus on discovering new ways to make and present art.
It is exciting to think about inventing the future. I am hoping you will jump in and help advise with ideas and
support as the project develops.
