Frank & Dunya Closing Gallery After 23 Years, Going Online

By Sean Keeley · January 17th, 2012 · 5 Comments

Whenever I have friends or family in town and I’m giving them the Fremont tour, we always somehow end up in Frank & Dunya even though I had no plans to. It’s just that kind of place, beckoning to you with its vibrant colors, curious artwork and whimsical flair.

Unfortunately, the home for so much local, independent art will be closing its doors and become a strictly online venture as of January 28th.

The gallery will be hosting an event on the 28th to say goodbye and they’d like you to be there.

Please, set the date to attend our “Farewell Fremont-Hello On-line” appreciation party for all our loyal supporters, artists and citizens of Fremont. It’s been 23 fantastic years, we couldn’t do it without you all!

Thank you humbly, Fremont! Thank you all our friends!!!

Until then, the store is featuring a moving sale and there is a “retail space for rent” sign up in the window.

Whoever the next company in that space is, may they embody the Fremont spirit even half as much as Frank & Dunya has.
