Avenue to Row: Desotorow Gallery opens second arts venue down the street
SAVANNAH, August 20, 2008: Desotorow Gallery has acquired an additional venue to host twice as many arts and educational events in the Starland District. In September, Desotorow will set up shop in 2423 De Soto Avenue, formerly TruSpace Gallery owned and operated by photographer Robert Wilson. As Wilson’s gallery shared many of Desotorow’s values, Desotorow wishes to carry on TruSpace’s legacy, while providing additional programming consistent with Desotorow’s mission. The new venue will be called TruSpace- a desotorow gallery.
Desotorow’s staff is thrilled that the second space will provide greater opportunity to offer the community more exhibits, film screenings, artist lectures, and other career-building and educational programs. The staff is eager to revitalize Starland’s art district by opening another gallery along De Soto Avenue, which will add to the thriving creative energy already generated from other businesses in the area.
Similar to its first space, Desotorow will staff the second venue with volunteers, who will book the shows, manage the gallery and events, and ultimately provide the Savannah community with a network of passionate artists and arts professionals.
TruSpace- a desotorow gallery is now accepting inquiries for exhibits and music events. Interested artists may email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on booking either or both venues for their next artistic event. Booking information is also available on the gallery’s website, www.desotorow.org.
