Cornwall Ontario Mayor Gets Free Art for Office While Public Gallery Set to Close After Funding Cut to Zero MAY 11, 2016

Clarifying Slanted Media & Mistruths About TAG Cornwall by Jamie Gilcig – FEB 5, 2016

What Does City Hall Have Against It’s Public Art Gallery in Cornwall Ontario by Jamie Gilcig DEC 21, 2015
