Busta Gallery Changing Hands


CLEVELAND, Ohio – The highly respected art dealer William Busta jolted the region’s art scene in January when he announced he would close his gallery in August and retire after 26 years in the business and hundreds of definitive shows on works by artists of Northeast Ohio.

Therefore, it may have been some comfort to local art aficionados earlier this month when Busta announced that Independence entrepreneur John Davies and his sister, Lauren Davies, an artist and former exhibit director of a non-profit gallery in Berkeley, Calif., would take over his gallery space at 2731 Prospect Ave. after he left.

Under its new ownership, the space will be called 2731 Prospect Gallery, and will open Sept. 18 with its first shows.

    Good to know. I’m still going to try to see it while he’s still running it though, hopefully.
