Center for the Arts announces new board member, elected officers

JACKSON, Wyo. — Center for the Arts announced yesterday the election of a new member and slate of officers to its Board of Directors.

During a quarterly meeting on Sept. 19, the board unanimously elected Shari Brownfield to serve a three-year term.

Brownfield has lived in the valley since 2002. After more than twenty years of experience working for other art agencies, Shari opened Shari Brownfield Fine Art in 2015, where she is a private art advisor, appraiser and collection management specialist. Her greatest joy is working closely with private collectors on the stewardship of their art collections. She feels deeply connected to the Jackson visual arts community and serves on the boards of the Art Association and Community Safety Network.

Brownfield and her daughter Finley love calling Jackson home and take advantage of the incredible activities that the valley offers, from outdoor pursuits to the many class options from Resident organizations at Center for the Arts.

“Shari has extensive professional experience in the art world along with business and non-profit experience. We are fortunate to have someone so highly qualified in all these areas join our board as The Center develops into a national and even international arts organization,” said David J. Rothman, The Center’s President and CEO.

A new slate of officers was elected during the September Board meeting with Valerie Brown serving another term in the role of Chair, David Hopkins as Vice-Chair, Mack Mendenhall as Secretary, and Bill Waterman as Treasurer.
