PBN on WJAR-TV, Feb. 4, 2019

Even in good times, R.I. gallery owners are anxious. Would better marketing of tax-free exemption help?

Every week, PBN Editor Mark S. Murphy appears on WJAR-TV NBC 10’s Coffee Break to discuss the newspaper’s most recent cover story and other issues with Sunrise and Noon News Anchor Frank Coletta.

This week Murphy and Coletta talk about staff writer Emily Gowdey-Backus’ cover story on the health and challenges that art galleries face in Rhode Island, from recession-driven decline in discretionary spending by collectors to the seeming under-promotion of the state’s exemption on sales tax for art purchases made in the state, in a story called “Galleries: Art and business on the edge.”
