We Welcom Piers Clarkson as the new Executive Director!

We are very pleased to announce that Piers Clarkson has been named the new Executive Director of Associated Artists! After starting in an interim capacity in February, his knowledge of our organization, combined with his leadership skills and passion for the advancement of the Arts, truly make him a perfect fit for this role. He is very committed to AAWS and is eagerly looking forward to guiding us through our upcoming location change and beyond.

Prior to joining us, Piers was a Human Resources professional, but he knew he would be better suited in a career supporting our Winston-Salem Arts community. He brings along a relentless energy level and enthusiasm for his new responsibilities, which are traits that will most certainly serve our membership and patrons well.

Although early 2012 has been a time of change for AAWS, it should ultimately prove to be a particularly positive period in our history. We will have more exciting updates for you shortly, and will be sharing further details just as soon as our plans are finalized. If you have not yet met Piers, please join us at the upcoming Dimensions opening reception on April 26 or at our Spring for Art Gala on May 18. Of course, you are all welcome to drop by the gallery any time for him to introduce himself to you in person, as well.
