News from Kennesaw State and NBAF: Reeves new gallery director; Odeleye wins award

Teresa Bramlette Reeves is the new director of the Art Museum & Galleries at Kennesaw State University.

Reeves (at left) took her post July 1. She will supervise operations and curation of the two galleries in the Department of Visual Arts and the KSU museum. She will also oversee a museum expansion — assuming KSU succeeds in raising $1 million by May 2012, which would activate a $2 million pledge from patron Bernard Zuckerman.

An artist and art historian, Reeves was gallery director at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center from 1996 to 2001.

Also in the news: Ayokunle Odeleye is the winner of the National Black Arts Festival‘s Mid-Career Artist Award. The Atlanta-based sculptor and KSU professor was selected through a vote conducted in the online journal Black Art in America.

A retrospective of Odeleye’s public art will take place in November 2012 at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia.
