Kathy Moore Named New Director of Anderson Arts Center

Anderson Artists Guild member Kathy Moore is the new executive director of the Anderson Arts Center (AAC). She succeeds April Cameron, who resigned to take a new job in the Savannah area.


Moore has a bachelor’s degree in art education from Anderson College and has taught art at T.L. Hanna High School since 2004. She had already decided that this school year would be her last, so she is retiring from Hanna as planned at the end of May 2024. But when she was asked to consider directing the AAC, it was an offer she couldn’t refuse. “I think I would regret not giving it a shot,” she said. “I feel like I’m ready for something like this.”


Moore has served on the AAC’s board of directors for the past six years, so she is familiar with its operation, and she is meeting weekly with Cameron to facilitate the transition. “April and the staff have done an incredible job of making art accessible to everyone,” said Moore. "This has been one of our main goals. I’ve got big shoes to fill; I will continue to advocate for the arts and work to provide cultural opportunities for our community. I am very excited about the positive economic and cultural trajectory our community is on. I am looking forward to being a part of this.”


Besides engaging the community, Moore hopes to involve more members of the Anderson Artists Guild. "The Artists Guild members are such a gifted group," she said. "I believe we ought to tap into  their knowledge and expertise as much as possible. The Arts Center is incredibly fortunate to have such a passionate group of individuals.”
