Newbury Street is losing another art gallery.
Victoria Munroe Fine Art, the gallery that hung its first paintings at 161 Newbury St. seven years ago, will close its doors for the last time Saturday.
Munroe first opened her gallery in New York City in 1981 and 20 years later moved it to Boston’s Beacon Hill. Munroe relocated to Newbury Street in 2005, according to her website.
It was not immediately clear why the gallery was closing. The departure was reported by WBUR Friday morning.
Munroe's gallery focuses on contemporary American paintings, drawings, and sculpture along with historical European drawings.
This is not the first gallery to say goodbye to the city’s shopping and dining hotspot in recent years. Both the Nielsen Gallery and Mercury Gallery vacated their Newbury Street storefronts in 2009. More recently, the Judi Rotenberg Gallery, closed in June.
Victoria Munroe Fine Art’s last exhibition showcases the work of Patrick Cauley, Carol Gove, Linda Etoff, Chuck Holtzman, Joel Janowits, and Harold Reddicliffe. It closes at 5:30 p.m.
