WENATCHEE — It starts with a beat. A catchy dance song plays from an unseen stereo. Someone begins to dance, looking a little silly. And then another person joins them.

CHELAN — Gallery Muse, located across the street from Campbell’s Resort on Woodin Ave. in Chelan, will close later this month. Rose Weagant Olcott and her husband, Jason Olcott, opened the gallery last December. The couple also owns a bar just down the street called A Shot of Gratitude.
