CORNWALL – The Art Gallery (TAG) has parted ways with its executive director.

TAG President Wyatt Walsh told a city budget committee earlier this month that Sylvie Lizotte was on leave while the board was doing an investigation.

Lizotte has reportedly been let go after nearly 20 years at the helm of the art gallery.

The board is now in the process of finding an administrator for paperwork and bookkeeping.

TAG had its funding cut this year as part of the grants to outside agencies program – with a cap of $13,500 – the money it already received this year.
