RIP Helm Gallery

One of the best galleries is the Puget Sound is closing their doors today. After an amazing run that lasted almost 2 years, Peter Lynn and Sean Alexander are shutting down to pursue other projects.  The Helm always supported artists, respected their vision and had a really cool periodic residency. All of this earned them a special place in a lot of people's hearts.  

I loved them since their first show called "The Kindness of Strangers".  Anyone who can create a show that proves how kind strangers are is pretty great in my book!  

Phil Roach was the final artist to show there. City Arts Magazine (Tacoma Edition) talks about the closure here.

Best of luck in your next endeavors, guys! And a big, ol' thank you from artists and fans everywhere!
