The Fay Gold Gallery, which made a splashy return to Atlanta’s visual arts scene last year, opening up a space inside the new Westside Cultural Arts Center, is closing again.

Gold, who was a major presence on the gallery scene for nearly three decades before shutting her Buckhead gallery in 2009, sent customers an email announcing that her exhibit of photographers Mike and Doug Starn, originally intended to run through Sept. 27, would instead close Sept. 16.

“I will no longer be associated with the Westside Cultural Art Center,” Gold wrote, without providing further details. “I have succeeded in my mission to re-enter the gallery world.”

She said she would return to working on her autobiography, to be titled ”Basquiat’s Cat,” and resume her art consulting business.

The gallery is at 760 10th St., N.W. Atlanta. 404-625-9094, www.faygoldgallery.com.
