Nanaimo art gallery chooses new leader

Julie Bevan’s strong background in visual arts led to her appointment as the new artistic and executive director of the Nanaimo Art Gallery.

Bevan takes the helm April 1 from Ed Poli, who is retiring after four years managing the gallery. Bevan holds a master’s degree in art history from the University of B.C., where she was public programs and publicity coordinator at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery.

Since moving to Nanaimo in 2010, Bevan served on Nanaimo Art Gallery’s board of directors and the City of Nanaimo’s cultural advisory committee.

“Given Julie’s strong artistic training, her work experience in other art museums, her involvement in the community here, and her positive energy and enthusiasm for everything she does, we believe she is the ideal person to help us move the gallery forward,” said Ian Niamath, board president.
