Mitch and Lee-Ann Jansonius have spent every anniversary selling and wrapping other people's Christmas gifts and they think it's time for a change: They're closing Heights Gallery.
They've operated the gallery for 33 years (and Mitch has been a framer for 40), so it will be quite a change in the Heights. They're also selling the building, at 5801 Kavanaugh. Mitch said he's notified the gallery stable that he's retiring and the artists are in the process of finding new galleries to represent them (Bev McClarty is going to Boswell-Mourot just a few doors down, he says).
The gallery will hold a closing sale in July, most likely, after the Jansoniuses return from a month-long vacation they've had planned for a year. The gallery will close during their vacation but will open up again for the sale, which will include gift items and some art as well.
The gallery was named best gallery in 2004; read about it here.
