At the opening of Gallery Lombardi’s Xmas Expo, gallery owner Ron Prince showed a collage entitled " The Gallery Will Close in January, " and apparently, it’s true. Gallery Lombardi, Austin’s open-door gallery will close those doors on January 15, 2009. Ron Prince opened Gallery Lombard in 1996 on 3rd & Bowie with the idea that "everyone is an artist." He will keep making custom woodworking at his shop. Rachel Koper, gallery director since 2000, is looking for a job in downtown Austin. The gallery space is for rent, $2500/month.
