Cora Fisher, SECCA's current curator, is stepping down after three and a half pivotal years. Cora will be with SECCA through March 1.

A native of New York, Fisher came aboard in October 2013 and brought a renewed spirit to SECCA, especially around issues of social awareness and justice.

Peterson said, "With the completion of the Dispatches exhibit - what I would call her masterpiece – she has decided on to focus on her growing family. Among her other accomplishments at SECCA is the on-going 12x12 Salon Series which provides a venue to feature North Carolina artists and will continue through 2018."

Fisher talks about her time at SECCA: "Serving as SECCA's Curator of Contemporary Art has been a privilege and a life-changing experience. I want the thank all the talented and passionate people I've worked with--our staff, the artists, colleagues and collaborators, and all the people who come through our doors, open to the adventure of contemporary art."

As part of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Recourses, SECCA will work with the state on the search for new candidates to fill the position.
