Art-felt adieu: The island’s art scene has bid farewell to Buchanan Gallery, which had operated in various downtown spaces since 1989. The gallery, owned by Kathi Buchanan, most recently was at 302 25th St. It closed last month. Buchanan moved to San Antonio for family health reasons, she said.
“It was not an easy decision, I assure you,” Buchanan said. “I spent 25 years there; the wealth of friends — not only the business — is what I hated to leave as well. It was just very special and important to me to have that degree of friendships.”
