As we move into the spring season, there are some transitions taking place at Fletcher Place Arts & Books. If you’ve stopped by recently, you may have noticed that the space has gotten a tune-up and a new paint job thanks to some wonderful volunteers! We have also experienced some transitions in leadership. Julia Phoebus has decided to step down as gallery director to pursue other projects. We are SO grateful to her for the energy, passion and vision that she brought to Fletcher Place Arts & Books! Julia and former director Christie McNabb laid a strong foundation of organization and programming that we hope to build upon as we move forward.
Since the space serves many purposes, we have decided to split the gallery director role into two separate positions. This will help distribute the workload and allow for more creative collaboration.
Emily Litsey will be our art coordinator. Her responsibilities include reviewing applications for art exhibits, meeting with and selecting artists for monthly exhibits, assisting artists with the installation process and overseeing First Friday events.
Sarah Pederson will be our events coordinator. Her responsibilities include managing the schedule of community events and assisting patrons who are interested in renting the space.
You can reach Sarah and Emily by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to facilitating many more events that celebrate art and community!
