Gilcig takes leave from TAG board

CORNWALL – The vice president of communications for The Art Gallery’s (TAG) board of directors is taking a leave of absence.

Jamie Gilcig announced Monday he will be stepping down after the board’s AGM in a few weeks.

TAG is requesting $85,000 this year through the City of Cornwall’s grants to outside agencies program.

In 2015, the art gallery received $13,500 after its funding was cut after some councillors expressed concern with legal and board issues swirling around TAG.

Since that time, a $500,000 lawsuit involving its former executive director was settled out of court.
