Gallery Celtica Transforming into Roosevelt Gallery and Bier House

The longest running art space along Roosevelt Row is about to take on a whole new identity. Gallery Celtica, the eclectic spot that's been home to funky works and the equally funky artist Ira L. Hayden for almost 30 years, is transforming into Roosevelt Gallery and Bier House.

In addition to the new name, Hayden and his wife Patricia are giving the decor a makeover, creating more space for patrons, adjusting the style of art that will be featured, and - most of all - adding a bar in the back that serves beer and wine. They hope to unveil the new look and name by mid-September.
