Maryland Art Place is pleased to announce the appointment of Dawn  
Gavin as new Board of Trustees President.

Dawn Gavin is the Associate Professor in Drawing and Foundations and  
Honors Program Director at the University of Maryland College Park and  
a professional artist. Originally from Glasgow, Dawn Gavin received an  
MFA in Fine Art and an MSc in Electronic Imaging from Duncan of  
Jordanstone College of Art and Design, in Dundee, Scotland. She  
currently lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland. Her studio work  
investigates issues of identity and displacement, employing a range of  
media from collage and installed drawings to digital video. As an  
artist she has exhibited her work both nationally and internationally.  
Her work has been shown at the Baltimore Museum of Art, The John  
Michael Kohler Art Center (Sheboygen, MI), Maryland Institute College  
of Art, Meyerhoff Gallery (Baltimore, MD), The Philadelphia Art  
Alliance, The Washington Project for the Arts (Washington D.C.) and  
the A+D Gallery (Chicago, IL).

Gavin joined the Maryland Art Place Board of Trustees in June of 2010  
and has been a member of the organization’s Program Advisory  
Committee (PAC) since 2008. She served as chair of the PAC for the  
2012 season. For the past several years Gavin has been deeply involved  
with MAP and worked closely with the staff and board on numerous  
projects. She has helped plan several MAP fundraisers sitting on both  
Fall Benefit and Out of Order Committees. As a PAC member, she has  
dedicated a great deal of time towards MAP’s exhibitions and is the  
curator of MAP’s current exhibition Bike Show.

"I am excited and honored to have this opportunity to work on behalf  
of such a important organization. I share the vision and commitment of  
an energized Board, Executive Director and staff, dedicated to the  
growth and vitality of contemporary art within Baltimore and beyond,"  
says Gavin.

Gavin is replacing MAP’s current President, Barbie Hart, who has  
generously donated her time and efforts over the past two years.  
Barbie Hart will remain on the Board of Trustees.
