Part of the new Adapt Gallery at The Studios at Bentley Projects.
A new art space called Adapt Gallery opened in September at Bentley Projects
in Phoenix. It’s operated by Craig Randich, one of several artists with space inside The Studios at Bentley Projects. The Studios are located in a detached building on that site, just a few steps west of the Warehouse215 courtyard, and near Bentley Gallery as well. The gallery officially opened with a group show on First Friday, September 1. The exhibition featured Bentley Studio artists Chris Raypole, Jesse Paulk, Idakatherine Graver, Katharine Leigh Simpson, and Randich.

Stacey Champion closed Treeo gallery in 2017.
Public relations professional and community activist Stacey Champion closed the Treeo gallery she operated on Sixth Street in Roosevelt Row
in January. Treeo opened in October 2014 and was located inside a small bungalow in a part of downtown Phoenix undergoing rampant development. Champion moved her offices to The Funk Lab
on Grand Avenue, and is no longer operating a formal exhibition space. (She's since relocated to midtown Phoenix.) Artists who previously exhibited at Treeo include Colton Brock, JB Snyder, and Fred Tieken.

When Burton Barr Central Library closed temporarily due to flooding damage sustained in July
, downtown Phoenix temporarily lost an exhibition space that typically presented monthly art shows featuring local artists. The gallery, located on the first floor near the library’s entrance, will reopen when the library reopens. It's expected to be back in operation during the summer of 2018.
