"They'll see some challenging images in the gallery space," Fast said.
Fast's desire to connect with the community through visual arts made her an ideal candidate for this position, said Margaret Chrumka KAG executive director.
"It's always nice to bring someone with new eyes," said Chrumka.
Since December, Fast has been the interim art curator for the Kamloops Art Gallery, filling in for veteran curator Charo Neville, who is on maternity leave.
"The opportunity to curate my own exhibitions was the draw for me" Fast said.
"Already I can see it opens different doors for me."
Becoming Animal, Becoming Landscape runs at the Kamloops Art Gallery January 14 to March 25.
