Julie Burdett

Faces of GRFF, NewsletterSummer2016

July 11, 2016

 

When you visit the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, chances are the first person you’ll meet is Julie Burdett, KWAG’s Visitor Services & Volunteer Coordinator. Seen most days at the Reception Desk at the entrance to the Gallery, Julie not only recruits and coordinates the efforts of KWAG’s wonderful volunteers, she also ensures that everyone who comes through the Gallery doors has an optimal experience here.

When asked what she likes most about her work at KWAG, Julie is ebullient:  “I like everything! I like working in a place where I get to focus on what I’m passionate about, which is the arts.” She notes that interacting with volunteers is a particularly enjoyable part of her job, and she has transferred that passion to her own volunteer work in the community. At the Grand River Film Festival, Julie is a Board member and Chair of the Design committee. It’s a perfect fit as her love of art and design provides the festival with a talented lead ensuring GRFF looks good!

Julie holds an Honours B.A. in Fine Art from the University of Waterloo, where she honed her skills painting in oils. An active artist, she has participated in a number of exhibitions, most recently at the Gladstone Hotel and Gallery 1313, both in Toronto.  Her work can be seen on her website at www.julieburdett.org
