New life for deteriorating icon

Pioneer Gallery moving into former Danville Hotel Restaurant

by Dolores Fox Ciardelli

The Pioneer Art Gallery has found a new home - the iconic red-and-white former Danville Hotel Restaurant that more recently housed Celia's Mexican Restaurant.

The gallery, run by the Alamo Danville Artists' Society, was housed for the last year and a half at 524 Hartz Ave., courtesy of Brad Blake of BNP Ventures, who is planning to tear it down and build a new retail development.

The artists still have workspace upstairs in that location but Rakestraw Books relocated recently to the former gallery space on the ground floor.
