Amie Potsic has been named the new executive director of Main Line Art Center in Haverford, PA. Amie will succeed Judy Herman, who is retiring after nearly 25 years of leading the organization. Amie will begin her tenure as executive director on July 30.

"I couldn't be more thrilled and honored to be joining Main Line Art Center," says Amie. "I feel fortunate to succeed Judy Herman, a beloved and strong contributor to the Art Center, and to have the opportunity to work with the incredible staff, faculty and board that are the heart of the organization. I look forward to leading the Art Center towards continued success while nurturing its vibrant, talented, and giving community."

Amie is a skilled and experienced arts administrator, project manager, curator, and arts advocate. She most recently served as director of the Career Development Program at the Center for Emerging Visual Artists (CFEVA) in Philadelphia. In addition, she is currently chair of the Art In City Hall Artistic advisory board to the City of Philadelphia's Office of Arts, Culture, & the Creative Economy.

"Amie fills the room with her energy and vitality," says Elaine Lisle, incoming board president. "We think that Amie has the energy, vision and drive to pick up where Judy left off."
