The Mantis Collective, which closed up its North Street gallery at the end of 2007, plans to reopen a temporary new home at Albert Michaels in Midtown Harrisburg.

The “new” Mantis will kick off with a group exhibit from 8-10 p.m. on Saturday, June 28.

Albert Michaels is located at 214 Verbeke Street between Second and Third streets in Midtown Harrisburg.

Andrew Guth and Tara Chickey, Mantis’ founders, said they continue plans to find a permanent home for their gallery, but are eager to have a presence in the city once again.
