Cooper Jackson closing

Not too surprising. Not what what I want to hear.
The toll of our bad economy is beginning to show up in tangible ways. Suzanne Gagnon, who operates the Cooper Jackson Gallery at 70 India St., Portland, plans to close her gallery.

She writes in an e-mail, “Spring has arrived, but the weather and the economy have taken their toll. I will be closing the gallery at the end of May, which means this is the last show Cooper Jackson will mount.”"

That news is not altogether surprising. Art galleries and other entertainment that depend on discretionary income are likely to be among the first casualties of a bad economy.
