I just received this from the curator of the gallery at EWU:
Good afternoon, Dr. Buchanan,
I wanted to share with you that the EWU Downtown Student Gallery will be closing its doors this June 2019, and will not be able to host your exhibition fall quarter of 2019. While I was very excited to host this exhibit, given the university’s current budget situation, it has been decided to close the gallery.
Thank you so much for your support and I wish you well.
I bet the athletics program at EWU continues to receive full support!
