KAMLOOPS - An interim curator has been named for the Kamloops Art Gallery, taking the reigns while the current curator is on maternity leave.

Adrienne Fast will be taking over until January, 2018 from Charo Neville.

Fast, who recently received a PhD from UBC in Art History, has worked in art education and as an assistant curator at the province’s largest public gallery, the Vancouver Art Gallery.

“Her particular interest in printmaking and South Asian art provide us with a unique opportunity to share this expertise with our community,” executive director Margaret Chrumka says in a media release.

Fast’s year long tenure will include overseeing upcoming exhibitions and curating a show in the summer and another in January, 2018.

She was hired after a national search to fill the temporary position.
