IPFW’s Continuum Gallery Downtown To Close

There will be one less cultural draw in Fort Wayne’s cultural district this spring.

The Continuum Art Gallery operated by IPFW downtown will close its doors this month, according to the gallery’s website. Any art displayed in the gallery must be picked up no later than 4 p.m. April 21, according to the site.

The gallery, which is on Wayne Street next to J.K. O’Donnell’s, displays work primarily created by students and graduates of IPFW.

Possible reasons for the closure were not available on IPFW’s website, and calls to the university were not immediately returned Thursday evening.

The gallery opened in 2008 as a partnership among IPFW’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, college alumni and Scott and Melissa Glaze, who own the building at 125 W. Wayne St.

Charles O’Connor, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences since 2008, announced in January that he will resign this year, effective June 30.

O’Connor will fill the position of dean of the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln beginning in July.
