Boxer has international support

 THE EDITOR, Sir:

Jamaican art is an important part of my private international gallery, thanks to the outstanding Dr David Boxer.

Due to his knowledge, dedication and talent, I was encouraged to purchase his and other local artist pieces and visit your National Gallery on more than one occasion.

Since his unprofessional treatment at the National Gallery, I have not visited Kingston nor purchased Jamaican art.

The whole situation is deplorable for your country and culture. Congratulations to the author of a recent People's Report article in your paper, 'Crisis, intrigue embroil National Gallery' (Gleaner, July 19, 2014).

Support for Dr Boxer is international.
