Wentworth Gallery closed at SouthPark

Art retailer Wentworth Gallery has closed its SouthPark mall location, the company's only store in the Carolinas.

Wentworth was near the mall's main entrance, next to The Walking Company by the Maggiano's restaurant. The store closed last week, a company employee said.

Based in Florida, Wentworth operated 11 retail locations, including Charlotte. Here is the company's description of itself, in case you're not familiar:

"At Wentworth, we define selection not only by bringing you some of the most collected and heralded artists worldwide, but by travelling to the far reaches of the globe in order to introduce you to new artists whose works are sold exclusively through Wentworth Gallery. We carry artists such as Peter Max, Alexandra Nechita, Paul Stanley, Charles Fazzino, David Schluss and Grace Slick. We also carry artworks from masters such as Chagall, Picasso, Pissaro, Matisse, Renoir and Miro."
