Simply Chicago Art, 1318 Oakton St., will close its doors on July 23. The gallery featured art, jewelry and music by local artists and held frequent workshops featuring their wares and talents.

In a letter to “friends, family, artists, supporters and customers,” owner Mary Berg said, “It has been an honor and a privilege to share this experience with all of you. I have no regrets about opening the gallery, and have gotten to meet some of the most incredible and creative people. … My life has been enriched because of all of you.”
