Residential galleries and alternative spaces have a tendency to fizzle out quickly, sometimes only lasting one day. After three years of running Subterranean, I saw no reason to close it when I decided to move to New York City. I was lucky to have the obvious choice for a new director working in the gallery right next to me. I’ve appointed my friend and long time gallery assistant Melaney Mitchell to the position of Director. She moved into the gallery August 1st. and is overflowing with ideas for the space. I learned and was given so much from the KC arts community and I’m riding the NYC subway right now thinking about all of you.
