Less than three years after opening on Broad Street in Red Bank, the combination art space/consignment shop Gallery U and Boutique is closing.
An offshoot of Universal Institute, a healthcare provider specializing in services for brain-injured clients, the gallery functioned as a training center as well as a display space for visual artists, musicians and poets.
The gallery is relocating next month to Westfield.
“Good for them, bad for Red Bank,” said local photographer and gallery owner Bob McKay. His mother, Dana, has two photos in a show that opened there on Friday.
