Appalling treatment of Dr Boxer

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I have read the article in The Gleaner on July 19, 2014 titled 'Crisis, intrigue embroil National Gallery' and must say I am very pleased to see that there is finally some publicity regarding the appalling treatment of Dr David Boxer.

He is a Jamaican treasure who has done so much for local art and culture in Jamaica and internationally, in addition to being an extremely talented artist himself.

I have made many visits to the gallery on my trips to Jamaica whilst he was curator, but since his departure I have absolutely no interest in doing so.

It is a shame to see such natural-born talent cast aside for unknown reasons.
