A shift in ownership has changed the name of one of Baltimore's leading commercial galleries from Knight Gomez to Nye Gomez Gallery.
Gary Knight, one of the original partners with Walter Gomez, has sold his interest in the gallery, located on Leadenhall Street in South Baltimore, and Washington art collector Jorden Nye has bought into it, Mr. Nye said yesterday.
He also said the change will bring some shift in emphasis. "The gallery has done an excellent job in the first three years, primarily representing Maryland artists with some regional artists. Walter and I want to make the gallery a major player in the mid-Atlantic region. We will continue to concentrate on the mid-Atlantic, but from time to time we want to have national and international artists. We will continue to represent most of the artists we currently have."
