I'm not too sure about the revert SPIKE. It doesn't sound right to me, and it is at odds with the headline, which treats gallery as singular. Leverage (talk) 22:37, November 28, 2013 (UTC)

The author (Romartus) should decide, and probably rename the headline. He follows the British method of using the plural for a group of multiple people (including, I presume, a gallery). Spıke ¬ 22:40 28-Nov-13
It is known as the Saatchi Gallery here. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 07:58, November 29, 2013 (UTC)
@Romartus, what I mean was, treating a gallery like a plural, for example saying, "The Saatchi Gallery are showing a new exhibition" sounds weird to me. @SPIKE, you're right that Britons often use plurals for teams, workforces, because we think of it as a collection of individuals rather than a singular unit. But I can't imagine a gallery as a group of individuals, in the same way I would never say "The museum are..." or "The shop are...". Anyway, it's a trifling matter.Leverage (talk) 08:39, November 29, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, I misunderstood the request. Ok...more coffee...--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 08:55, November 29, 2013 (UTC)
The Saatchi Gallery lynched my grandfather once, but then they kept holding his kicking feet in the air and finally let him down, making him think he was safe, when the entire Gallery threw him off a cliff and counted the seconds until he hit bottom. 3.6 was the best estimate.
