After four years in Laguna Beach, Rohrer Fine Art has closed its doors permanently.
The upscale gallery, where a multi-million dollar sale of works by Monet and Degas made local history in 2007, has moved its wares to Palm Desert and a new location in Jackson, Wyo., according to gallery spokesman Carey Conklin.
"We are closing Rohrer Fine Art to focus our effort on developing unique art offerings and dynamic exhibitions at Heather James Fine Art," Conklin said. "With three fantastic galleries, two located in Palm Desert, Calif., and our newest in Jackson, Wyo., Heather James Fine Art features a wide breadth of art from blue chip to cutting-edge contemporary."
The Craftsman-style gallery at 346 N. Coast Hwy., which opened in 2006, has been up for lease for several months.
