After six creative years, the Long Gallery in downtown Penticton is closing its doors.

Jennifer Long, the owner of the art gallery at 374 Main Street, announced on April 12 that the location is closing.

“It has been a great time being in this space with the professional artists who have shared their unique artistic work,” Long said in a press release. “Creating together we have made a space we are all really proud of.”

According to its website, the gallery featured eight resident artists.

The gallery has hosted many creative exhibits over the years bringing in well known artists from Vancouver and celebrating local artists as well. Long has also involved the gallery in numerous community events and fundraisers.

The location was once called “Little Long Studios,” before Long expanded operations in 2018.
