The Boystown business The Leigh Gallery, 3306 N. Halsted St., will end its 15-year run with closing party Friday, Aug. 23, 5-9 p.m.
Owner Jean Leigh said in a goodbye letter, "I will be changing my career path and onto wonderful new adventures! Joe will continue in the arts and is enthsiastic [about] his future endeavors."
In April, Windy City Times reported that Leigh is retiring and planning on moving to Wisconsin with her wife. Leigh and the gallery were recently profiled in Windy City Times: http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/Jean-Leigh-runs-Boystown-gallery-for-everyone/64110.html.
The Aug. 23 event will also feature what is being called a "huge sale." See TheLeighGallery.com .
