Perihelion Arts to Close for the Summer
If you've heard any rumors lately that Perihelion Arts will be closing soon, don't freak out. While it seems like downtown Phoenix galleries are going belly up left and right, the Roosevelt Row art space run by Amy L. Young and Douglas Grant is merely shutting down for the summer.
According to Young, Perihelion will be closed in both July and August to allow them some time off during the hottest time of the year. While everyone deserves a much-needed vacation now and again to relax and recharge, in the case of Young and Grant, their holiday is long overdue.
"We've been running shows at Perihelion more or less every month for the last nine years and haven't taken any time off," she says. "This is just for the summer and will allow us to relax, catch up on some work, and think about where to take things in the future."
