After 33 years, Mark Moore Gallery will suspend its exhibition program, and close its physical space on January 1, 2017. The exhibition space in Culver City is now closed.
I have been wrestling with this decision for some time now, but after a significant amount of soul-searching and discussions with my family, I have decided that it is time for me to move on to the next phase of my life and career.
During its lengthy and critically recognized tenure, my gallery focused on serving the art community with its mission of presenting the work of emerging and mid-career artists. I still believe that this is a vital market, but I am now interested in exploring alternative business models to the traditional gallery setting. The fact of the matter is that running a gallery as productive and involved as ours requires undivided attention and energy and I would like to now find new and more innovative ways to put my experience to good use while also allowing myself personal and professional flexibility at this time.
I intend to continue to be an important resource for private collectors, museum curators, and commercial galleries on curatorial projects, public commissions, and acquisitions moving forward as Mark Moore Fine Art. Given that, I will continue to privately represent artists on a limited basis. My hope is that you will continue to reach out to me with questions or needs in this new context. While I will no longer maintain a formal gallery space, I will remain active as an independent consultant, dealer, and arts advocate; I will share the details of my new business structure with you in the coming months. Please do not hesitate to let me know how I can assist you with new projects or collection advice in the meantime.
It has been a distinct honor and privilege to work with you, and watch this remarkable, personal venture take shape over the greater portion of my life. I am deeply grateful to my amazing staff, artists, patrons, curators, and colleagues who have played a vital role in the gallery’s success.
Thank you for your ongoing support, and I look forward to seeing you in the next chapter.
