Local artist/curator Scott Lawrimore is again on the move — he’s left his post at The Frye and has just been named the first director of the UW’s Jacob Lawrence Gallery, effective July 1. According to a news release, “he is taking on an upgraded and re-imagined position at the helm of The Jake, which will be a pivotal role in the School.” (The UW School of Art + Art History + Design, that is.) “We’re going to blow the roof off this place,” said Lawrimore, in the same release.

Lawrimore was named deputy director of collections and exhibitions at The Frye in 2012. He’s worked with Art Access Magazine, Foster/White Gallery, Davidson Galleries, and Greg
Kucera Gallery before opening his own space, Lawrimore Project, in 2006.
