For more than a decade, Mary Urbas has served as the gallery coordinator and exhibition curator for The Gallery at Lakeland Community College. She is responsible for developing and curating a calendar of events and exhibitions, and maintaining and archiving LCC’s permanent art collection. Additionally, Ms. Urbas is responsible for the promotion, plan, layout and design of all exhibitions. She is also in charge of all aspects of producing The Gallery’s eight shows, including the annual Lakeland Community College Visual Arts Faculty and Juried Student Shows, and organizes the Holiday Artists Market, whose proceeds fund the cash award at the Visual Arts Student Exhibition.
Ms. Urbas is very proud that she has organized seven exhibitions featuring hundreds of local, regional and national female artists in honor of Women’s History Month every year since 2008. She feels very accomplished that the exhibition is now expanding outside of Lakeland and consists of 16 galleries.
Outside of her work with The Gallery, Ms. Urbas supports a number of charitable causes, including animal welfare, civil and human rights and disaster and humanitarian relief.
