The answer to that headline is: yes, probably.

A quick poll of 25 randomly selected galleries with current exhibitions revealed only a few planned to close this weekend. There is no rest for the city’s gallerists!

The results of our foray into service journalism are below. Please be sure to call ahead to any galleries you hope to visit, though, since their decisions may change. (Also, thank you to Los Angeles’s Margo Leavin Gallery for the holiday e-card, which inspired this article.)
