Juneau gallery observes Final Friday

First Fridays are a chance for local businesses and galleries to encourage customers to come again.

For one gallery in downtown Juneau, there isn't much time left.

On Friday, April 4, Sara Chatfield of Chiton Jewelry Gallery celebrated her "Final Friday."

April 19 is the last day for the gallery, which will be packing up as Chatfield moves to Whittier for the summer.

Chatfield has operated from a small space on Front Street for two years, but when the owner of the space said he was ready to un-retire and take back the space, Chatfield said she didn't have much choice.

"There's just nowhere else I want to be in town," she said.

Chiton, which occupies only about 100 square feet, hosts Chatfield's jewelry as well as the works of Michael Hunter and Brian Schuch. In total, four artists' work is featured in the gallery.

Chiton is located at 237 Front Street and can be reached online at www.sarachatfieldglass.com.
