Interim Executive Director

 

Gloria Comstock, the museum’s curator, has been appointed Interim Executive Director. The Board is interviewing applicants to fill the position left vacant when our previous Executive Meegan Carr resigned in early March. We wish Meg success in her new job in Pennsylvania where her husband is in seminary.

 

 

Gloria Comstock joined the Virginia Quilt Museum as Curator/Registrar in 2013. A 2010 graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Masters of Arts History of Textiles and Quilt Studies program, she has researched the Hortense Horton Beck Education Collection. Her research has included an internship working with the Seminole Ethnographic Textile Collection. In 2006 and 2010 she coordinated the Quilting Natural Florida I and II Exhibitions at the Univ. of Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainsville, FL. Prior to joining the VQM, Comstock was Asst. Curator at the Florida Museum of Natural History.
