Lakeside Gallery announced this week it will soon be closing after three years at 4431 E. Superior St. The art gallery said it decided not to renew its lease and will be closed by the end of April. In the meantime it will remain open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m to 4 p.m.

“We love the people, the artists and the community,” the gallery wrote on Facebook, “but have decided to go in a new direction.”
