WELCOME OUR NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, KAREN WILLIAMSON
Caswell Arts is excited to welcome Karen aboard!
Karen is life-long lover and supporter of the arts. She is a Writer/Researcher for the grassroots organization, Caswell History Speaks. This was created in 2019 as a way to teach local history through an “edu-tainment” experience. She is a strong advocate of programs/information that engages the community at large, advances the study and tells the rich stories of Caswell County through the arts. Part of the process to make that happen is to partner with like-minded organizations with missions of serving Caswell County in an artistic manner.
Raised in the suburbs of Washington, DC, Karen moved to rural Caswell County (where her parents were born/raised) in 2011 to care for her elderly mother. Karen earned a BBA degree from James Madison University with a minor in Dance Theatre; has worked for Honeywell, Johnson & Johnson, PepsiCo, and other small businesses. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Thomas Day House in Milton, NC and is a 2019 graduate of the Middle Border Forward Fellowship program. Additionally, Karen is an award winning photographer and reed weaver.
