TU taps curator

Tiffin University has named Lee Fearnside curator of the Diane Kidd Art Gallery. In addition to her teaching responsibilities, Fearnside is to be responsible for overseeing exhibitions, presenting themed and regional shows and providing internships for TU students working toward art administration degrees.

“I look forward to working to connect the Diane Kidd Gallery with the curriculum, as well as engage the community with professional art exhibitions from across the region and the country,” Fearnside said.

Through the leadership of Diane Kidd, the original art gallery opened in Franks Hall in 1994. The gallery since has grown and is located in the Hayes Center for the Arts.

Fearnside, who has previously exhibited her own work at the gallery, earned a master’s degree in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design. She also holds a bachelor’s degree in studio art from Smith College and a collegiate teaching certificate from Brown University.

Fearnside also has taught at College of the Holy Cross, Roger Williams University, Greenfield Community College and Salem State College.
