Staff & LEadership


Our staff and board of directors bring experience and energy to the mission of AVA.

We benefit not only from a broad spectrum of expertise in arts administration, gallery operation, and nonprofit development, but also from an engaged community of arts advocates whose support is enhancing Chattanooga's cultural landscape.


A special thanks to these funders for on-going operational support.
