The Van Vessem Gallery has announced that it will permanently close its Tiverton gallery as of June 1st.
“With much regret and very mixed emotions, I need to inform you that it is my intention to close the gallery space at 63 Muse Way in Tiverton as of June 1, 2018,” the Gallery announced on Thursday on Facebook. “I wish to thank everyone who has supported the gallery over the years, and especially all the artists who made the space sparkle with their wide variety of works. It has been such a pleasure, thank you all!”
Van Vessem Gallery, located at 63 Muse Way in Tiverton, was founded in 2012 by visual artist and gallerist Marika van Vessem. The gallery has since featured national and international emerging and mid-career artists, who work within a wide variety of genres and mediums.
