While 5&6's new space at 7051 East Fifth Street (next to 5th and Wine) is a little bit smaller, Rhodes says he doesn't expect the move to affect business or opening attendance -- after all, it's only about 100 feet from the old location.
And the gallery's rent will remain relatively the same; Randich says he Calverley have taken on and negotiated 5&6's new lease with the new property owners.
"These artists have done such an amazing job with the space and have introduced the community to a different kind of work," says Randich. "I'm just so happy we could help them to continue creating and experimenting with gallery ownership."

You can expect this month's show, The Plastic Antics Exhibition, to be full of painted and actual collectible vinyl toys, as well as pieces which Rhodes says focus on the creative DIY movement.
Work from the gallery's resident artists as well as Josh Pearce, Nerviswr3k, Spencer Hibert, and "Milk Munny" curator Isse Maloi will be on display for the opening on March 10 from 6 to 9 p.m., and through April 2.
