The Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking welcomes Jerushia Graham as the new Museum Coordinator. Jerushia is a familiar face in the galleries and classroom, since she has been teaching workshops at the museum for several years, including the popular EXPLORE homeschool program.
Jerushia says, "I look forward to bringing you great exhibitions and programming as the Museum Coordinator for The Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking. The museum is a very special place. I’ve always loved the exhibits and workshops offered by the Papermaking Museum. It is a real pleasure to now have the opportunity to serve behind the scenes in the capacity of Museum Coordinator. If you’re in the area, please stop in to see the museum and say hello. We love visitors!"
Museum Director Teri Williams echoes Jerushia's pleasure in joining the staff, saying, "Jerushia brings valuable and unique talents to the museum- she's a papermaker and printer, as well as a practicing artist. We look forward to the creative contributions that she has to offer the museum and our visitors. The experiences she brings - both educational and professional- are significant. We're delighted to have Jerushia as an integral part of our staff!"
She earned an MFA in Book Arts/Printmaking from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, and teaches for the Atlanta Printmakers Studio, Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur, The Jacqueline Casey Hudgens Center for the Arts, Kennesaw State, Spelman Museum, and various Arts Centers in the Atlanta area.
Please give Jerushia a warm welcome! Watch for new offerings to come featuring this great addition.
