Grimaldis to quit Morton Street site for Charles Street

January 06, 1993|By John Dorsey

The C. Grimaldis Gallery, one of Baltimore's leadin commercial art galleries, will move from its present location at 1006 Morton St. to downtown Charles Street in March.

Gallery owner Constantine Grimaldis said yesterday that his new space would be on Charles Street but that he couldn't confirm an exact location because negotiations were continuing.

The Mitchell Baker Galerie will be vacating Grimaldis' former site at 523 N. Charles St. at the end of January, and there is speculation that Grimaldis would move there.

Neither Mr. Grimaldis nor Michael Koch, real estate agent for the Charles Street space, would comment on this.

Mr. Grimaldis said the gallery's move would not interrupt operations. "We will close the Elaine de Kooning show in this space at the end of February and open a show of the work of John Gossage in the new space the first week in March," he said.

He and Steven Ziger, principal of the architectural firm of Ziger Hoopes & Snead, which owns the Morton Street building, said yesterday they had been unable to agree on terms for renewing Mr. Grimaldis' lease, which expires this month. Mr. Ziger said his firm hopes to find another art gallery as a tenant.
