Eugene’s Jacobs Gallery remains closed while city crews repair a leaky wall on the front of the building. There’s still no firm estimate of when the private non-profit gallery, located on the lower level of the city-owned Hult Center, will re-open.
The gallery shut down early this month, and an exhibit of prints from Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts was removed, when water seeping through a wall from the lower courtyard outside the Hult began to dampen the floor.
Initially officials thought the gallery would re-open by the beginning of March.
On Wednesday, though, the Jacobs changed the date of the opening of its next show, The Macchia Six – Landscape Painters, pushing it back a week to March 27.
“Since the water repair schedule is not up to us, it has been difficult to confirm (a new opening date),” wrote executive director Holly Monnette in an email. “Stay tuned.”
