Lumas to close tomorrow

Lumas, which opened on Boston’s Newbury Street on June 14, will close tomorrow “due to the economic crisis,” the store says. Lumas, a chain specializing in limited-edition photographs often in a flashy fashion photo style, represented a minor ray of hope for the Boston gallery scene at a time when many galleries were closing last year. But now it will be gone too.

Lumas’s full press release:

Lumas Boston Closes Doors

Dear friends of LUMAS,

Much to our regret, the doors of LUMAS Boston are going to close this Wednesday due to the economic crisis. All pending orders will be dispatched directly to the address on file at no extra charge. Stephanie Yovino, Alexandra Tayne and Lauren Colonna of our New York gallery team will be more than happy to help you out with any questions you may have in the future. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this inevitable change. New orders can be placed either with the gallery in New York or around the clock at www.lumas.com. We appreciate your continuous loyalty and interest in our growing portfolio. We will continue to keep you posted on all news in the future.

Best regards,

Kelly Yount
Gallery Director LUMAS Boston
