Phillip Gevik's Galleries get Knocked Off Again.
So, how about that? The boys of the night, who wear black masks and sleuth around the art districts have been at it again. This time, Gallery Gevik in Toronto's Yorkville district got knocked off and the thieves made off with two Group of Seven works; Beach Litter by Arthur Lismer and a Tom Thompson work. I wish they could have driven to my place and ripped me off at the same time. I could use all the publicity I can get.
The Gallery owner Phillip Gevik, must be wondering what else he can do for a living. His Quebec Gallery got knocked off a couple of years back.
If you click here, you can read the complete story, in Toronto's Globe and Mail. It was written by Timothy Appleby.
