Team WWG


Anyse Ducharme – Interim Artistic Director

Anyse Ducharme is a francophone media artist from Sturgeon Falls. Her aesthetic production is engaged with and situated in opposition (from within) to digital colonialism through small, sometimes subversive acts: glitching images with internet comments, dismantling assumptions of transparency that are both promoted and compromised by the ways in which knowledge is increasingly organized in the era of the computer, and by exploring dataʼs un-representabilty through the transformation of information into various representational states.

She has a Masters of Fine Arts in Studio Arts from The University of British Columbia, a Baccalaureat en Arts Visuels from The University of Ottawa and a college diploma in Animation 3D from La Cite collegiale. She is thrilled by the opportunity to contribute to & to collaborate with                                 the artistic community in North Bay & area as Interim Artistic Director of the White Water Gallery.

Ian Laplante – Interim Administrative Director

Ian is one of the latest additions to the White Water Gallery’s expanding new team. Ian has been working and volunteering in arts administration in North Bay for the past seven years. Working alongside Interim Artistic Director Anyse Ducharme, Ian is committed to WWG’s mission of supporting innovative and relevant artistic practices.

He is also the Programming Chair for North Bay Film and a Sessional Professor at Canadore College. Ian has a BA (Hons.) and MA from Nipissing University and is currently pursuing is PhD through York University. His dissertation explores performances of masculinity in late 19th-century Ireland.

Mitchell Ellam – Indigenous Curatorial Intern

Mitchell is Oji-Cree of the Brunswick House nation, Bear clan. He is an emerging Media Artist living and working on Nipissing territory. In the role of Indigenous Arts Programming Intern at White Water Gallery, Mitchell is working to craft policy and develop an Indigenous Curatorial Residency to create more space for Indigenous makers and arts administrators in contemporary art organizations.



Cameron Lamothe – Business Development Intern

Cameron is a recent OCAD University graduate, originating from Northern Ontario. Working primarily in photography, collage, and printmaking, his photo-based practice utilizes appropriated images gathered from archives. The acts of finding and re-learning enable Cameron to examine various identities, and critique representations of masculinity, politics, and history.

His work has been featured in multiple Canadian publications, including The Northern Appeal, and has been exhibited in Northern Ontario and Toronto, including Project Gallery Studios. He has also collaborated on various community arts projects, and is excited to reconnect with the city of North Bay and its surrounding area.
