Now, however, Liu plans to move; the Brooklyn Papers reported, in an article this week headlined For gallery's last show, look up in the sky (p. 4), that Liu sold his building to Ratner several months ago. (The terms have not been disclosed; will Liu be allowed to discuss the deal with the press?)
"It's a real tragedy," gallery manager Leon Kalas told the newspaper. "Simon's gallery had become an important gathering palce for artists, and now it's all being destroyed."
A notice on Liu's web site states:
Simon Liu Inc. is moving the whole facilities to a new location. There will be no exhibition after June 02, 2006.
New gallery location and hours will be announced.
