At Ago they hide the art until you pay - I think that is so sad. Art should be free for all people to see and enjoy not locked up behind golden gates so only the rich can see it!
Then I found out the president of AGO makes like a million dollars per year. a president of a little art gallery paid a million dollars a year, really - go to the McMichael - this place should be investgated next after they are done at ornge. a million dollar president for a small art gallery. really?

Lucky to have such a beautiful building in the city. I could go back several times a month and not be bored.
