By now most of you will probably have heard this news, but for those of you who have not, I have made the hard decision to close the doors of Spa Velia Art Gallery.

There are several factors that have persuaded me to take this action - art sales have been very slow since the financial turndown and the number of local San Diego artists submitting their work to the art space was not enough to keep the gallery running.

It's never easy to walk away from a project that has been so all consuming, however I feel that now is the right time for me to take this step.

I have had wonderful support from the San Diego arts community, sponsors, my friends and from the owners at Spa Velia and it has been a delight to show off artworks from our local talented artists.

Thank you for supporting the Spa Velia Art Gallery and me this past year.
