|Artspace’s Board of Directors would like to announce the upcoming departure of the centre’s Director and Curator, Jon Lockyer. Lockyer joined the centre in September 2014 and since then has become a fixture in the community’s cultural landscape.
Reflecting on his time at Artspace, Lockyer says, “I’ve been very grateful for the opportunity to contribute to Artspace’s ongoing history, and have cherished the relationships I have formed with the countless individuals I’ve met and worked with over the last six years. It has always been my aim to improve the centre’s standing in our community, while putting the needs of artists and their practices at the forefront of the work we’ve done here. While I may be departing from the centre, I will always hold a deep love and appreciation for the centre, and all that I’ve learned during my time there.”
The centre’s board and staff are grateful for Lockyer’s commitment to the centre, and to the community, over these last six years and wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavours. On Lockyer’s departure, Artspace Board Chair Cyd Hosker states,
“On behalf of the Board of Directors, I extend heartfelt thanks to Jon Lockyer for six years of service and dedication, and offer congratulations as he embarks upon a new professional adventure. His welcoming manner, along with his expertise, knowledge, awareness, and genuine love for the arts have enabled Artspace to continue to flourish as one of the region’s vital arts organizations.”
In conjunction with Lockyer’s departure, the centre will undergo a hiring process, with a job posting made public in early January 2021. Please stay tuned for more information.
