Welcome New Gallery Educator

The Mann Art Gallery is pleased to announce Lana Wilson as its new Gallery Educator. Lana started at the MAG in late November and has been a wonderful addition to our team. She is looking forward to building upon the work done by her predecessor, Twyla Exner, to deliver dynamic gallery programs and enhanced learning experiences.

Lana grew up in rural south-west Manitoba. She has spent the past seven years in Saskatoon, where she was a program guide at the Mendel Art Gallery, Collections Research Assistant at the Kenderdine Art Gallery (University of Saskatchewan), volunteer at AKA artist-run, and volunteer coordinator for Street Meet Festival.

Lana received her BFA (Hons) in Art History at the University of Manitoba and her MA in Art History at Queen’s University. Her master’s thesis is titled The Gonfalone di San Francesco al Prato: History, Imagery, Function. In addition to her art history studies, Lana also has extensive knowledge in pre-20th century English literature. Her areas of interest are vast, and include contemporary public art, acting and theatre, needlework, paper marbling, and ceramics.

Lana can be contacted at educator@mannartgallery.ca

Welcome New Director/Curator

The Mann Art Gallery has appointed Jesse Campbell as its new Director/Curator.

"Jesse Campbell was with us from November 2012 to March 2013 as Assistant Curator under the Young Canada Works grant program. If you were lucky enough to attend the Art History classes she conducted at the Mann Art Gallery, you will have great respect for her knowledge, organizational skills, and interpersonal abilities," said Annette Henbid, Chair of the Mann Art Gallery Board.

After fulfilling her term with the Mann Art Gallery in 2013, Jesse worked as Assistant Curator at the newly opened Robert Bateman Centre in Victoria BC. She has also held teaching and research appointments at, respectively, the University of Saskatchewan and the Barber Institute of Fine Arts in Birmingham, England. At the latter she was awarded a grant from the National Portrait Gallery to conduct research on British portraiture. She has published on representations of domestic interiors, portraiture, and personal art collecting. Jesse received her Master of Arts in Art History at Universiteit Utrecht (The Netherlands) in 2012 and her Bachelor of Arts in Art History at the University of Saskatchewan in 2010.

Born and raised in Saskatoon, Jesse is thrilled to return to her home province. She looks forward to building upon the gallery's dynamic exhibition and programming schedule and strengthening its ties with the North Central Saskatchewan community.
