Art on Kent to Close

I just received a notice that Art on Kent in Lindsay, Ontario will close its doors when the "What's your Canada Show?" ends on 08 July 2017.

As I have found with most cooperatives, there are members who feel that they are entitled to reap the benefits of having a Gallery in which to exhibit their art and to attend classes and workshops; these same "members" are unwilling to do their fair share of the work, which is required as a member of the cooperative.

This year it became mandatory for all members to be on a committee and do their fair share to keep the Gallery. In this case, over two thirds of the members chose not to renew their membership because they were unwilling to do their fair share of the work.

The end result is the Gallery will close on 08 July 2017.
