Having visited great art galleries in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto, we couldn't believe that this must be the only large-city art gallery anywhere in the world that did not possess a permanent art collection. When we visited, two floors of exhibitions were also closed - so we just left without seeing any art.
For a city the sizeof Vancouver to have such an poor art museum should be more than a little embarrassing. When comparisons are made with British provincial city art galleries - such as Manchester, Glasgow, Liverpool - all of which are smaller - and probably poorer than Vancouver, one simply despairs. The city fathers of Vancouver should hang their heads in shame - and should certainly sack their gallery director!
