FARGO-Steve Revland has a new space downtown-but it'll just be a temporary home for his art gallery.
The artist opened Revland Gallery Wednesday, Aug. 24, at 409 Broadway, the former Schumacher Goodyear tire and service shop.
The building has been a temporary home to several ventures in recent months, hosting a "Brews on Broadway" pop-up patio with live music and beer three nights a week as well as serving as the new location of Red River Market on Saturdays. Experience Blur performed "The Great American Trailer Park Musical" there last month, and Theatre B will start its next season there in September.
Revland said he signed an eight-month lease to keep Revland Gallery there through next April, and he will share the space with Theatre B. Once the lease is up, he said he hopes to move to another spot in downtown Fargo.
Revland closed Uptown Gallery, a former venture that opened in 2013 at 74 Broadway, this spring after a deal to sell the gallery to a new owner fell through.
He said Revland Gallery, which will be open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, will feature tables, pottery, sculptures, paintings and more from 14 artists, many of whom had previously displayed work at Uptown Gallery.
Revland originally planned to open a gallery on the southeast corner of Roberts Street and Second Avenue North this fall, but that plan changed and led to him setting up at 409 Broadway.
