Mary Temple's Resignation
Long time Gallery Manager Mary Temple has decided to retire at the end of this month. Mary has held the position for nearly 10 years and has been vital to the growth of Arts of the Albemarle. Her accomplishments are many - most recently, she oversaw the move into The Center, expanding into a space housing five galleries. She has watched and encouraged artists, craftsmen and photographers grow and develop, and mentored many volunteers throughout her career. She will be missed by many and we wish her well in her retirement. Watch for more information about a celebration of appreciation!
