Whitney Gill
Whitney Gill Potter

Whitney Gill is an artist and arts administrator living in Bowdoin, Maine.  Her ceramic work consists of functional pottery designed for daily use. She uses various design techniques to decorate the surface of her wheel thrown pots. Printmaking and illustration often lead her down new paths in her three dimensional work and provide a method to merge her love for illustration with functional ware.

Whitney studied fine art & ceramics at the University of Maine and has continued to refine her craft through the guidance and support of many great artists & local organizations. She currently works as manager of the Center for Maine Craft in West Gardiner, a retail gallery operated by non-profit Maine Crafts Association. Whitney is passionate about helping fellow Maine artists establish connections and gain new skills to grow their creative businesses through membership and active involvement in community organizations. In 2018 she purchased her first home in Bowdoin, Maine with the intent of creating a shared workspace on the property. The garage is now a shared studio between Whitney and mentor Mary Kay Spencer of The Potter’s House. Together they are creating a workspace that functions as a production studio and showroom with an outdoor space for small events.

Raised on her family’s 200-year-old farm in Western Maine, Whitney has always admired the artist's way of life and the creative magic that can be found in rural places. She strives to make her own creative contribution to the world around her on a daily basis.  In her free time Whitney enjoys playing music, paddleboarding, gardening, and exploring the roads less traveled to Maine’s woods, lakes and mountains with her spouse, dog, and two children.
