Blake Shell Named Director & Curator

The new Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Director and Curator of The Art Gym and Belluschi Pavilion, Blake Shell, joins Marylhurst University today, December 16, 2013.

She will work in transition with Terri Hopkins over the next month. Hopkins will retire in January, after 33 years as director and curator of The Art Gym.

Blake Shell served as director of the Archer Gallery at Clark College from 2009 to 2012 and project manager for the Stroemple Art Collection in Portland, managing a collection of 1700 artworks. She was also a curatorial assistant for the Hoffman Gallery at Lewis & Clark College.

"Blake Shell is an energetic, creative and skilled curator," said Hopkins. "Several years ago, the shows she organized for the Archer Gallery at Clark College in Vancouver drew my attention and led to my belief that when the time came, there were amazing young curators ready to take The Art Gym into the future. I am very pleased to pass the baton to Blake and am excited to see her take on the contemporary art of our region."
