Shifting Cultural Boundaires | Works from the Permanent Collection

We all surround ourselves with things that give us comfort and let’s be honest, we live in a consumerist society and all feel a bit of guilty pleasure every once in a while after purchasing certain things.  For some it becomes an addiction of sorts, and our personal belongings become akin to a museum collection.  This hard push for acquisitions would be a good way to describe the gallery holdings of late, with several works of art from important artists joining the vault every year.  Unlike at home though, this collection is for the benefit of the entire community, province and nation, not unlike our exhibiting mandate.
