And A few More People Who Are Not interested In An Art Gallery

That is ridiculous!!!So many Woodstonian’s going without even the basic needs of food and shelter and our city feels it acceptable to lavish the art gallery? The rich get the art gallery while the poor get death-I hope many call and raise hell for the foolish waste of money!

I may not live there anymore but what the fuck is wrong with the art gallery the way it is? Even with a bad economy. They should pile the 8mill into resources for addictions, affordable housing, the womens shelter and a homeless shelter. They could do so much good with that money instead of squandering it on art. I may paint myself, but the money is needed elsewhere BADLY. Its worse everytime I visit.

I agree with you Amanda on where the money should be spent.

    I suppose a strong argument can be made that the money could spent more wisely elsewhere but that takes away from the central point.

    There Is No Money.

    Council isn’t sitting on a bag of cash that they don’t know what to do with. Any money spent on a gallery will be borrowed money and we will repay it on our tax bills (or hydro bills.) Add to that the annual operating costs which have not even been addressed yet and you have a growing nightmare of debt and future expense.

    Somebody had better supply a Pressing Need in order to justify putting us all in debt to finance an exclusive playground facility for a few art fanciers.

    I’d like to see each member of the Advisory Board and Friends of the Gallery stand before the people of this community and explain just what the hell they think makes them so goddam special.

    Me too. This is just a waste of time and money. As a former assistant curator of a Beachville Museum(Which makes me about as esteemed as holy hell..the fool formerly of Port Burwells lighthouse museum….)I in my assteemed opinion believe that the requirement for a new gallery…based on my knowledge of museums in general, which ain’t much but it makes me esteemed and it makes me a former curatorial assitant I am of the mind that Woodstock don’t need a new gallery. tada! It’s fucking magic how that works!

    Yeah. Ain’t it amazing how being a retired school teacher and part time curator of a couple of roadside tourist attractions in Bayham makes you an esteemed expert in cultural capital and all things arty. Harding’s scraping the bottom if that’s the best testimonial he can come up with. 🙂

    How can he scrape bottom when he’s a bottom feeder to begin with!

    Lets see…….Harding and his merry band of f*&k ups want to build an expensive Fart Gallery that almost nobody will use. We are in a very serious recession everyone! Meanwhile out of work people are losing there social assistance, crime rates are going up, infrasture is crumbling (not to mention lead in our drinking water pipes) and property taxes keep going up.

    MAKES SENSE TO ME!
