It’s been a tumultuous year for Cornwall’s public art gallery, but the board and public had some fun and enjoyed a lovely downtown Saturday afternoon in Pommier Square!
TAG Cornwall wishes to thank the community and especially Andre Pommier & the Pommier family for allowing us to use their square to hold our Dunk Tank fundraiser Saturday July 4th.
We also wish to thank Councilors Justin Towndale & Maurice Dupelle for being good sports and Thom Racine who also was dunked along with TAG’s Directrice of Awesomeness Kimberley Cameron and President Wyatt Walsh.
We also wish to thank local Comic Mark Vincent for being our funny and talented MC for the event!
The event raised over $700 on the day and was highlighted by former board member Lorna Foreman sinking three victims, and a spontaneous pie throwing rumble that broke out!
TAG Cornwall has a goal to raise $40,000 this year after the Mayor & Council cut the 33 year old public gallery’s funding to zero.
Today’s funds will help offset the cost of the NEW FACES show which officially kicked off and will last for the month of July.
The show is designed to help nurture and develop emerging talent in the community and cost over $4,000.00
The show is open Wednesday to Saturday from noon to 4 PM at 168 Pitt Street right across from Pommier Jewellers.
