Newspace Staff Changes

Newspace Center for Photography is pleased to announce a number of exciting staff changes.

First, we are thrilled to share that Newspace Founder Chris Bennett has returned to graduate school at the University of Hartford’s International Limited Residency Photography MFA. While in school, Chris will continue working part-time at Newspace as the Center’s Director.

Taking Chris’s place as the Executive Director is Tricia Hoffman, who joined the Newspace team in June. Tricia has worked at Blue Sky Gallery and Photolucida and recently completed her MFA in Photography.

While we’re saddened to share that Laura Valenti Jelen has left Newspace, we’re thrilled to continue working with her in her new role as Outreach Director at Photolucida.

Putting to use her past experience as the Photo Workshops Director for Rocky Mountain School of Photography, Newspace staff member Kristy Hruska will take on the bulk of our educational programming as the Education and Membership Coordinator.

Longtime Newspace staff member Nina Johnson will expand her existing role at the Center to become our Volunteer and Program Coordinator.

We’re grateful that ongoing volunteer Leslie Hickey will be staffing the Center on weekends.

Finally, we’re excited that Kaitlin Bodiroga, a photography student at Evergreen State College, will be interning at Newspace for her Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 semesters.
