Suzie Smith leaves Martha Street Studio for new opportunity

Suzie Smith is leaving Martha Street Studio for an exciting position at Plug In ICA, delivering a New Chapter Project throughout the city of Winnipeg. We wish her all the best with this new adventure and wanted to highlight some of her achievements over the most recent 5 plus years that she has served as Professional Programming Coordinator, (previously Suzie spent 3 years as the Coordinator of Education and Outreach and was an instructor and Bingo volunteer throughout).

Suzie developed former long running Graff residency exchange, and a new Centre [3] residency exchange, she has coordinated and developed exhibition programming in the gallery and graciously played host to visiting and local artists alike. Some of the major exhibitions at Martha Street Studio, under Suzie’s watch, included Seripop, Dominique Petrin, Daniel Barrow and Dylan Miner.  She additionally curated, with Abigail Auld; All In, exploring collectives and print process. Suzie introduced Winnipeg to its first ever Steamroller print festival, the first of which, titled Under Pressure, took place in 2007.  Although we are very sad to see her go, we know that ‘this place’ will see her return time and again.

Good Luck Suzie Smith!
