Interior design firm to add gallery to downtown operation

An interior design firm in downtown Grand Junction has announced plans to add an art gallery.

Interiors, Etc. expects to add the Oakley Gallery in October, said Kirk Granum, floor manager at the business. The gallery will occupy about 1,200 square feet within the more than 20,000 square feet of space at Interiors, located at 602 Main St.

Interiors already displays art from gallery owner Sarah Alyn Oakley and Interiors doesn’t need as much space as it did in previous years, Granum said.

Oakley previously displayed art at the Blue Pig Gallery in Palisade. The Blue Pig is moving after the building that houses the building at 119 W. Third St., was purchased to offer a new location for the Palisade branch of the Mesa County Public Library.

Library officials are working with the Blue Pig Gallery to allow artists to continue selling their works through the Colorado Mountain Winefest, which ends Sept. 18. The Blue Pig Gallery plans to announce a new location within a few weeks.
