Head of Communications

Winsor Gallery

  • Full Time
  • At Winsor Gallery, I directed successful PR campaigns, gaining international media acclaim from the BBC, Globe and Mail, Huffington Post and more. A favourite project was place-branding 'The Flats', a cultural district of over 16 contemporary art galleries now officially recognized by The City of Vancouver. Day-to-day duties involved developing the careers of over 40 leading contemporary artists through managing exhibitions, district-wide events, and educational initiatives; and acting as an in-house resource for art advisors, driving acquisitions by major museums as well as private and corporate collections.
