It is currently looking for a new location and will host a final champagne toast Saturday.
The Short North emerging artist's den 83 Gallery will no longer be in its current space (at 1038 N. High St.) beginning January 1, according a recent e-mail the gallery sent to its e-mail list of fans.It continued: "We are seeking out a location that will allow us to pursue more events and live music, while still providing salon-style group shows for our fabulous artists. In the meantime, we'll continue to be active in the Columbus arts scene with outside venue exhibitions, pop-up shows, intern education, artist assistance and local creative collaboration." It goes on to thank its supporters of all the previous 83 Gallery incarnations and gives a shout out to Mikey's Late Night Slice for giving the gallery an opportunity to grow in the space beside the pizza joint. The gallery will host a closing party of sorts from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15. Bring your favorite holiday spirits and a dish for the mac and cheese cook off to say goodbye. A final champagne toast will happen at 9:30 p.m.
