Welcome to our new Associate Director, Phoebe Potter

We are excited to welcome Phoebe Potter to the Prattsville Art Center and Residency (PAC) family as our new Associate Director. Phoebe grew up just ten minutes away from PAC and has deep ties with the local community. As Associate Director, Phoebe will work closely with Executive Director Nancy Barton and the Board to shape and advance the strategic goals of the Center through community engagement, collaborating with artists in residence, and fundraising and development efforts.

Since graduating from Gilboa-Conesville Central School in 2005, Phoebe has worked in government and non-profit agencies to advance reforms of the criminal justice system, including efforts to reduce the nation’s dependence on mass incarceration and improve the reentry process for people returning home from prison and jail and their families. Over the past year, Phoebe launched the Heartivist Collective to promote collaboration amongst healers, artists, and activists, and support their work through strategic visioning and program development.

In transitioning to PAC, Phoebe intends to use her experience in non-profit management and community organizing to promote grassroots social change rooted in the arts and creative expression. She believes that public art spaces have the power to bring diverse people together to creatively envision and build holistically healthy, inclusive, and sustainable communities. She looks forward to collaborating with the many people who support the Center to achieve this vision.

Phoebe can be reached by email at phoebe@prattsvilleart.org, and welcomes you to visit her at the Center during our open hours!
