About the Curator:
Mary MacDonald was an artist, writer, and independent curator currently residing in St. John’s, NL. She was interested in alternative locations for contemporary art and contemporary artists working within rural communities and contexts.
It is with deep sadness, fond reflections, and heavy hearts that all of us at Atlantis (Association of Artist-Run Centres from the Atlantic) acknowledge the passing of Mary Florence MacDonald, a lively, talented, influential and dedicated member of our community, and most recently, our Flotilla curatorial team. Mary contributed a great deal to the writing of our major grants, the creative visioning, curatorial framework, and most of all, the core mindset of the flotilla concept.
