We bid farewell to our very special

Exhibition Committee

Curator Emma Thurgood

Emma is moving back up north to explore new opportunities and be near family. She is sad to leave us but will still be helping from afar to make a smooth transition for our new Exhibitions Coordinator.

Emma has made a huge difference in the Art Center’s exhibitions. Her knowledge and talent has put us on the map as being an important place to show work. We are going to miss her terribly.

All are welcome to join us for Emma’s farewell party:
