Over the weekend of February 14-15, Gallery XII suffered a broken sewer pipe and has had to close while workmen finish repairs.  Fortunately, no artwork suffered damage, but the bathroom floor as well as some of the floor in the main part of the gallery received water damage and must be replaced.
Gallery President Carolyn Denver had hoped to be able to reopen by Friday, February 20, but the building manager has informed her that it will take a few more days to replace the damaged sections of the floor and bathroom walls.  She is cautiously optimistic that we will be able to reopen in time for Final Friday.  We will keep this list as well as the gallery Facebook page updated.
For the gallery,
John Ellert
