Mary Bradshaw

Gallery Director, Yukon Arts Centre Public Art Gallery, Whitehorse YK

Mary Bradshaw is the Gallery Director at the Yukon Arts Centre, where she feels her most important role is to bridge the gap between the public and contemporary art. Her enthusiasm for, and training in, art education and museum studies has led her to various cultural administration roles in artist run centres, public art institutions and a national sporting event. Certain that opening crates is one the most underrated tasks in the Gallery, she always jumps at the chance to peer inside at the treasures.

 Born and raised on Vancouver Island, Mary had never experienced a proper winter before moving to the North over ten years ago, and to her great surprise she loves it.
