I am dismayed that we should be losing one of the few galleries with a reputation in scheduling such a lot of stimulating contemporary exhibitions.It demonstrates still further the arts councils determination to dilute the 'real art'scene-cutting funding to progressive galleries and passing it onto Arts centres whos main agenders is to facilitate the wider community and please the general public.Artists are unique in their creativity and cannot continue to be treated as facilitators for art as education for the mases or as counsellors.Whatever happened to intellectuals being appreciated for their individual thinking and challenges of the unknown or uninvestigated.Let us all make pots and paint murals with the disadvantaged and leave our minds behind us.
