Whitney GillManager, Shop Maine Craft

Whitney has always admired the artist’s way of life and the creative magic that can be found in the solitude of rural places. Born and raised in Western Maine on her family‚Äôs 200 year old farm, Whitney was privileged to be raised by artists and musicians who nurtured her creative growth. She attended the University of Maine at Augusta with a focus in ceramics, quickly becoming acquainted with local artists and organizations, such as Maine Crafts Association, where she began working in 2013. Whitney now manages Shop Maine Craft, a new organization established in 2022 which operates retail-focused programming for Maine craft artists and members of the MCA, and sells her pottery at Maine Craft Portland. Her office is based out of the Center for Maine Craft in West Gardiner, and she can also be found working across many MCA and SMC programs and events.
