WAUKESHA — Downtown art gallery and studio Random Twigs is closing its doors at the end of July, according to a post on the business’ Facebook page.

“This isn’t the end, just a time to re-evaluate the shop and its path,” owner Casey Maul said in the post. “As the owner, I’m going back to my roots as a painter, artist, and maker, taking a break from being a business owner and going back to school for industrial design. This was a hard decision to make because I have met many great artists and customers though four years of business.”

The business opened at 275 W. Main St. back in 2010, when Maul and founder Nathan Evers envisioned a gallery with a studio space in the middle, allowing people to see artists working as they shopped.

No one at Random Twigs returned calls seeking comment this week.

“We’ve learned so much from the entire experience and we’re sad to close our doors (for now!), but excited for new opportunities,” Maul said in the Facebook post. “We thank everyone for your continued support. Please stay tuned...”
