Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg announces new executive director
Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg, an arts nonprofit organization supporting artists in Spartanburg County and surrounding counties since 1957, has announced the selection of Caitlin Boice as its new executive director. Boice has been working as the interim director since June 2014. The selection was made after a regional search and selection process. “We are very pleased to announce this appointment,” President Thomas Rickis reported. “Caitlin’s work ethic goes above and beyond, and her knowledge of community has benefited the Guild since she joined. Her effort and rigor as demonstrated in various Guild events have given the Guild increased visibility, a reconnection with former members and more new sponsors. Her knowledge with the various member organizations and staff at Chapman Cultural Center allowed her a smooth and successful transition into the position. The board of trustees wishes her all the best and continued success.” Boice’s background includes a bachelor’s of arts degree in arts management from the College of Charleston and a minor in hospitality and tourism, with various internships at different galleries in Charleston. “I look forward to continuing to serve as the director and working with Chapman Cultural Center and our partners to help better our community,” she said. “I am very dedicated to the arts in our community and only want to see them grow stronger and stronger.” Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and its mission is to cultivate, nurture, and grow the visual arts in our community by supporting local artists.
