The Glass Art Society announced today that Brandi Clark, who had served as executive director of the Cascadia Art Museum in Edmonds, Washington, has stepped in to fill the position of executive director recently vacated by Pamela Koss after 14 years. A native Texan Clark has worked at a range of nonprofit organizations in Texas, Pennsylvania, and Washington, including a 7-year stint as events manager and then director of community initiatives at Seattle's Pratt Fine Arts Center.
GAS board president Natali Rodrigues said in a prepared statement: “Brandi brings not only a depth of knowledge and experience with her, but great organizational skills as we transition both at the leadership level, and into a new office space.”
In a prepared statement, Clark said of the position she started this past Monday: “This is an exciting time for GAS, with the momentum gained from the organization’s recent historic conference in Murano, Italy... I’m so inspired by this community. I’ve worked with many amazing glass artists in the past and when I was offered the chance to work for GAS, I didn’t hesitate. I am honored and grateful for the opportunity.”
