720 Gallery is closing its doors. But before it does, the downtown art venue is hosting one last exhibition and a fundraiser to benefit Bassim Al-Shaker, a local artist who lost several paintings and personal effects when his studio was robbed last month.
From 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, September 5, 720 Gallery will host its final exhibition, "Intersections, " featuring the mixed media works of Nuna Dow. Dow's work is considered a colorful reflection of her eclectic upbringing as the Baghdad-born child of an Iraqi mother and Czech father and a past resident of Europe and South America.
Although the gallery had originally intended to remain open through the end of September while hosting "Intersections," following the break-in of Al-Shaker's studio, owners ultimately decided to move up its closing date and host the exhibition for one night only.
