    They never responded to emails, phone calls promptly. Always had to send the same email two or three times with the answer always changing. Always had to go to them to initate decor etc. Dinner was slow, bar service slow.

    We visited the Art Gallery of Hamilton last winter. It was a spur of the moment thing, It was bitterly cold outside and we were walking down King St, trying to avoid the Rambler races between the people with the flags attached to their bumpers and the old ladies from the Legion. We ducked in a doorway and found ourselves outside the gallery. It was late Saturday, they were only open for another hour or so, so we decided to do a quick tour of the free area. What a surprise! A lot of phalic African art and there was a nude model posing for noted amateur...Read More

We visited the Art Gallery of Hamilton last winter. It was a spur of the moment thing, It was bitterly cold outside and we were walking down King St, trying to avoid the Rambler races between the people with the flags attached to their bumpers and the old ladies from the Legion. We ducked in a doorway and found ourselves outside the gallery. It was late Saturday, they were only open for another hour or so, so we decided to do a quick tour of the free area. What a surprise! A lot of phalic African art and there was a nude model posing for noted amateur painter Dalton McGinty. Inside a smaller gallery someone had strung up Christmas lights over a bust of Samson. Not sure what that meant, but it was interesting. There was also a spoken word display with a chap on a megaphone whispering London bus schedules from 1974. The whole place was rather quiet and we had a lot of time to inspect the exhibits. I stood in front of one for a long time pondering it's meaning in the modern world when it dawned on me that I was, in fact, staring at a fire hose and extinguisher. We left the gallery and meandered through the gift shop, eventually buying a replica, full size verision of "The Raft Of The Medusa". It now forms a load bearing wall of our loft apartment. All in all, a fantastic place that really makes you think about modern art and how useless it all is.
