Congratulations to our very own Natalie Grieshammer, who was recently promoted to Director of Artist Resources! She will now be at Summit Artspace in a full-time capacity to focus on strategies for resourcing artists. We are so thrilled as this is the first time in our organization’s history that we have had a second full-time professional alongside the Executive Director. Natalie’s extensive experience as an arts administrator has been instrumental as Summit Artspace has grown and changed this year. She has spearheaded many positive changes to the building and has dedicated herself to revamping our galleries and exhibitions since she started in March. We are so excited to see her thrive in her new role, and are so lucky to have her on our team!
