Tanya Tobias-Tomis is the new executive director of the Lake George Arts Project.
She replaces longtime director John Strong, who retired.
Tobias-Tomis has close to two decades of nonprofit experience, including 12 years at Saratoga Arts, most recently in her role as associate director. She worked on many projects there, projects, including Art@Work + Home program and First Night Saratoga.
Tobias-Tomis was education coordinator at The Hyde Collection in Glens Falls. In addition, she is on a number of boards of directors, including the Adirondack Folk School, the Hudson River Mill Museum and the steering committee for the Saratoga County EOC’s Latino advocacy program’s Estamos Aqui fundraiser.
The search for Strong’s replacement began in the summer of 2019, after he announced plans to retire at the end of the year. Strong stayed on through January in order to assist with the transition.
Lake George Arts Project was established in 1977. The organization manages year-round Courthouse Gallery exhibitions, the Lake George Jazz Weekend in September, and a Wednesday evening Summer Concert Series during July and August.
