G39 announces new staff and board members

We have recently welcomed no fewer than four new people into the g39 fold. Firstly we are delighted to introduce Jude Bennett as g39 Curator. Jude holds a MA in Curatorial Practice and has managed exhibitions and residency programmes at various arts organisations throughout the UK and Ireland for the past decade such as Catalyst Arts (Belfast), Florence Trust (London), aspex (Portsmouth) and Newlyn Art Gallery (Cornwall). She takes on the crucial role of leading g39’s artistic direction while Anthony Shapland undertakes a year long sabbatical supported by a Creative Wales bursary.
Secondly is a person who may not need an introduction but certainly deserves a hearty g39 welcome – Emma Geliot, who has been appointed as Finance Assistant. Emma has 25 years’ experience of working in the visual arts in Wales as artist and arts administrator. After completing a postgraduate diploma in journalism at Cardiff School of Journalism, Emma is now a freelance journalist and editor for CCQ (Culture Colony Quarterly) magazine. She brings to the role a vast knowledge of financial reporting and compliance in the public sector.
We also welcome two newcomers to the Board: Bob Gelsthorpe and Hoodi Ansari. Artist Bob Gelsthorpe works with a number of media and has a curatorial element to his practice. Bob researches the idiosyncrasies of his studio practice, and the ‘studio’ itself. Bob graduated with a BA in Fine Art from the Cardiff School of Art and Design. He is also co-founder of BIT Studios in Cardiff.
Hoodi Ansari is a Business Intelligence Analyst at Confused.com. Having studied Documentary Photography at Newport, he has a personal interest in the visual arts in South Wales. In his role as Business Intelligence Analyst, Hoodi manages reporting for the company which involves a mixture of programming in various different computing languages and getting value out of data, making links and identifying shortcomings in order to make improvements.
We are delighted to have brought so many talented and ambitious people to the organisation, and we’re looking forward to their input over the coming year.
