MINT Gallery has its first full-time staff member. Candice Greathouse, who has been the nonprofit gallery’s interim operations manager, is now gallery and creative director. She will assume full-time hours on January 1.

Greathouse received her MFA in photography from Georgia State University in 2012, and recently completed her MA in contemporary art history. She has been working on the upcoming exhibition “Middle,” a group show co-presented with the Office of Cultural Affairs at Gallery 72, on view November 21 through January 16.

In a press statement, Greathouse said: “I feel incredibly proud and excited to become the new Creative Director at MINT at such a pivotal moment in their evolution. MINT has had incredible growth and leadership in the last few years, and I feel we offer a unique voice in Atlanta’s developing art community. I look forward to refining our curatorial vision while maintaining our accessibility to emerging artists and arts lovers in Atlanta and beyond. We have some exciting things planned for the years to come!”

The funding for Greathouse’s position comes from the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs and the Fulton County Board of Commissioners by recommendation from the Fulton County Arts Council.
