Unfortunately the tough economy is forcing another art gallery in Tucson to close its doors.
Galeria La Sirena, 2905 E. Broadway (just west of Country Club) is closing on Saturday, January 30. The gallery specialized in Latin and Caribbean art, and started 9 years ago with co-owner Sherry Teachnor promoting Haitian art due to her friendship with assassinated Justice Minister Guy Malary. She had served as a peace corps member in the Dominican Republic, and fell in love with art from that region as a consequence.
And the gallery has been a venue for free community groups and events over the years.
A special “Remembering and Thank You show” will be held on January 30, from 4 to 7:30 p.m.
Drop by the gallery (open Tuesdays through Saturdays) as there are still many lovely, colorful paintings available, as well as wooden and glass fish objects. For more information call 520-319-1262.
After February 1st call Sherry and her husband/co-owner Michael McCrory at 520-327-3527 for remaining art & framing.
I’ve been to a number of the art shows at Galeria La Sirena over the years, and have blogged about them for this paper in September about an Ecuadorian tapestry exhibit. We will miss this special gallery’s contributions to the art community of Tucson.
Adios, Galeria La Sirena!
