Meet our Juror: Dr. Linda Neely, Emeritus Professor of Art, Lander University
“I am an art educator, emeritus professor at Lander University where
I coordinated the Master of Arts in Teaching program and chaired the Department of Art, having spent a bit of time as Interim Dean of the College of Education. As an art teacher (college, secondary, middle, elementary levels), I have some experience in a wide range of media from watercolor painting to craft, photography, and graphic design. As a researcher, I am interested in cultivating creativity and program assessment. As a studio artist, I am a former printmaker who is a current ceramics explorer — always learning and enjoying the journey.”
