A former art teacher in the Roanoke Rapids and Weldon school systems has been named the new curator of the Mims and Gravely Galleries at The Dunn Center on the campus of North Carolina Wesleyan University.

Sheila Martin, executive director of The Dunn Center, announced the appointment of Jan Sullivan-Volz as the new art curator.

Sullivan-Volz replaces Greg Purcell who served as part-time art curator and lighting designer for the past three years.  

“Greg accepted a position in Greenville to be closer to his new home,” Martin said. “He was an invaluable part of our team and we wish him all the best in his new endeavor. As we begin a new journey, we are excited to welcome Jan to The Dunn Center staff. She brings a wealth of experience to our group and is an active part of the art community locally and state-wide.” 

Sullivan-Volz holds a bachelor of fine arts degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond and has taught art at schools in Roanoke Rapids and Weldon. 

She has also served as an adjunct professor in the art department at North Carolina Wesleyan University.
