About the Juror

Dr. K.C. Williams is a visual arts professional with over 20 years of experience in the art world. As Gallery Director for the Mattie Kelly Arts Center Galleries in Niceville, Florida, she presented an annual schedule of professional fine art exhibitions, while hosting community art events, teaching college courses in art history, humanities, and art appreciation, and mentoring student artists. In that capacity, she grew a regional juried exhibition into the annual Emerald Coast National, and negotiated a rare solo exhibition of works by the late artist George Rodrigue. Prior to moving to the Panhandle, Williams was Curator for LeMoyne Arts in Tallahasee. Other notable roles include researching Nazi-era provenance in order to repatriate looted objects in the the collection of the Eskenazi Museum, and creating the first digital archive of the photographic works of William Eggleston.

Williams has published and lectured on diverse topics ranging from the Florida Highwaymen to Soviet pop art, and from WWII era propaganda art to the relationship between contemporary sequential art and Japanese kamishibai paper theatre. She holds a doctorate in education from the University of West Florida, where her dissertation addressed the function and uses of collegiate art galleries beyond the display of art; an MA in Art History from Indiana University (specializations in Modern, Medieval, and Roman Art); and a BA in Art from Rhodes College. She resides in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, with her husband, daughter, and geriatric pitbull.
