After 25 years as Director of the Union Gallery, Jocelyn Purdie has announced that she will step down from her position in the new year. Her unwavering committment to the gallery and its mandate has been the driving force behind its many successes over the years. We thank her deeply and wish her well in her future endeavours.
As she stated in her letter to the Board, "It has been a great pleasure to have served this organisation for the past 25 years. I have enjoyed working with and learning from the countless number of people who have been involved with the gallery over the years including students, faculty, staff, artists from the community and beyond, UG arts supporters and of course the general public who visit our shows and attend events. I believe there are many more exciting years ahead for the gallery and I look forward to seeing the direction the gallery takes with new leadership at the helm."
Jocelyn will be dearly missed by the staff and board at the Union Gallery.
We are currently accepting applications for the position of Gallery Director until December 17th. Visit Career Opportunities for more information.
