I have held the position of director and curator of the Van Every/Smith Galleries since January 2013, where I am responsible for curating exhibitions, developing exhibition-related programming, and overseeing and growing the Davidson College Art Collection, including the Campus Sculpture Program. I particularly enjoy curating interdisciplinary exhibitions, helping our audience find new access points into contemporary art.
Prior to my work at Davidson, I spent 10 years as director of programs and exhibitions at Artspace in Raleigh, N.C.
