It's been a 14-year run for Harrison Works Art Gallery, 17 Harrison St., in the Oak Park Arts District, but the business is closing its doors. 

An announcement of the gallery's closing notes that painter Elizebeth Gaylord visited the various galleries in the art district in the 1990s and wanted to be part of the burgeoning art scene.

"While always featuring the polar bear paintings of Elizabeth Gaylord, Harrison Works has hosted several solo shows for other artists and held many themed group shows," the news release states. 

Over the years the gallery has featured such acts as The Barbershop Experience, "a traveling show inspired by Barack Obama's Hyde Park Barbershop" and the Cigar Box Ukelele Show.

Harrison Works notes that the gallery is open 1 to 6 p.m. by appointment until July 21 and on June 16 until 10 p.m. for the Oak Park Art District's third Friday gallery walk. A special closing event will be held July 21 from 6 to 10 p.m
