State’s oldest art gallery going out of business
JACKSON — Bryant Galleries, Mississippi’s oldest commercial art gallery, will be closing its doors after 46 years in the art business and a final weekend “legacy sale.”
“It’s just kind of time for me to quit,” said Doris Allen, whose late husband, Bryant Allen, opened the gallery in Jackson in 1965, and, the following year, one in New Orleans. Bryant Allen died in 2006.
Bryant Galleries had eight locations in metro Jackson over the decades. Its current location is in Flowood.
Allen also is trying to sell the gallery on Royal Street in New Orleans, she said. She closed an additional location on Chartres Street this past summer.
