It’s always amazing to see some local ad choices by businesses in the Cornwall area.

Syd Gardiner & Elaine MacDonald Hypocrites When It Comes to Art in Cornwall – by Jamie Gilcig Feb 2, 2018

CORNWALL ONTARIO – In an I’m sure unintentional  bizarre joke the Seaway News ran a piece trumpeting a scrolling image on a TV in the basement of the Civic complex as a triumph for area artists. There are a few real artists in the region, but most have stayed away from the circus. Elaine was […]
