Art & Soul Closing Its Doors this month. Unless…

Art & Soul Gallery in Ashland

Art & Soul Gallery in Ashland will officially shut the doors on the 25th.

If you know anyone who might be interested in keeping this southern Oregon art community icon alive, they need to contact Eve Withrow or Linda Boutacoff immediately at 541-770-7442 or 541-821-6405.

From Art & Soul: Sadly our gallery is closing and we need to sell these items. We thought you just might either want them or know of someone else who would. They would also make great room dividers for studio apartments or to divide large spaces. Contact Linda Boutacoff at 541-770-7442 or 541-821-6405 if you or anyone you know may be interested. Thank You.
