Red Sky Gallery has officially closed

After 12 years as a mainstay in the Charlotte art scene, RedSky Gallery in Elizabeth has officially closed, owner Kellie Scott said Tuesday. 

The gallery, located at 1523 Elizabeth Avenue, offered paintings, jewelry, fine crafts and ceramics at a variety of price points. But a combination of weakened demand in the wake of the financial crisis, the rise of Internet art sales and a shift in their customer base made for it hard to stay afloat, Scott said. 


"A lot of (our customers) are aging out, downsizing, busy getting rid of second homes," Scott said. "So they're past the time of building (an art collection) up. And their children aren't interested in art." 

 But Scott said she's seen an outpouring of community support since she emailed customers in January to tell them RedSky was closing. The movers come on Thursday, she said.
