Marcus Miller Appointed Director/Curator of the Mann Art Gallery of Prince Albert
The Mann Art Gallery in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, is pleased to welcome Marcus Miller as Director/Curator, beginning in October.
Marcus Miller has worked across Canada and internationally as a curator, teacher, art critic, and artist. He comes to the Mann Art Gallery from the University of Saskatchewan where he was Director of the Gordon Snelgrove Gallery for 8 years, and more recently, Curator of Public Programming and Participation after the gallery amalgamation. He holds an MA in the Social History of Art from Leeds University and a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University. Marcus publishes critical reviews and articles with a number of Canadian journals, and was previously a correspondent for Contemporary Magazine in London, England. Residents may recall his first steps onto the Saskatchewan art scene as Director of the Allan Sapp Gallery in North Battleford.
Marcus recognizes that the Mann Art Gallery has a special role as the northernmost public gallery in Saskatchewan, and he is eager to contribute to its continued growth and community engagement. He’s looking forward to meeting artists at the gallery, in their studios around Prince Albert, and exploring north to more remote communities.
