The Team

Executive Director & Chief Curator
Vicky Chainey Gagnon 

I am from the Eastern Townships in Quebec and came to Campbell River in 2017 after many years working as a curator and arts administrator in Sherbrooke, Quebec City, and St. John’s. My research interests look at contemporary art practices and community outreach in an expanding field. 

Operations Manager
Thom Knutson

Curator of Contemporary Art
Jenelle Pasiechnik

I am originally from Calgary, but have been living on the Island for nine years. I deeply love the culture of respect for the environment and each other that many live by in this beautiful place, and am grateful to call it my home. 

The focus of my graduate studies research at UVic centered on contemporary artists of West Asia living abroad in the world, and the need to open the discourse of art to accept alternative narratives of cultural production globally. I hope to continue that interest as a curator in Campbell River by focusing on giving space and voice to under-represented communities. 

Assistant Curator of Engagement
Shannon Proctor McLeod

I am pleased to have an opportunity to bridge the art in the gallery to the community through some really interesting, engaging and thought provoking activities lined up by the gallery. I look forward to seeing you at a school tour, Super Saturday or one of our workshops.
