Assocated Artist Gallery Closes

The Associated Artists' Gallery, located at 715. S. University, had its final reception last night and closed its doors at the end of business today. According to the story in this week's Carbondale
Times, the AAG started up in 1983 in the space where Yesteryear Tobacconists now operates. From whta I understand, sales at this location have never been that great and membership in the AAG has declined over the past decade to the point where there's not always a volunteer available to staff the store. I know I've driven by several times in the past couple of months on a Friday or Saturday and seen a sign on the door to the effect that no volunteer was available to open the store today.
