Kay Storck Winner of the 1st Semi-Annual Docent Appreciation Award Art has been with Kay throughout her life. She started with watercolor and photography, and after a 25 year career in child welfare, urban policy and the environment, she began her journey into sumi-e — a Japanese brush painting technique using sumi ink made from soot on rice paper. Kay’s sumi-e paintings merge her Japanese and American heritage.
After moving from New Jersey to the Charlotte area in 2010 and searching for a local arts community, Kay found Mooresville Arts to be a perfect spot: inherently ingrained in the community, while providing artists with possibilities for individual and collaborative growth.
Kay served as Docent Volunteer Coordinator at Mooresville Arts for three years, developing procedures, training docents, and establishing this Award Program. She feels that volunteering at the gallery allows her to explore her interest in bridging the gap among people with different perspectives through communication in all forms. Thank You, Kay!
Our docents are the first face of our gallery. We invite you to become a part of our Gallery by being a volunteer docent. It's easy and fun to greet our patrons, and if they like, show them the gallery, sell some art and tell them all about our shows and opportunities. You can even become Docent of the Quarter!
We welcome you to be a part of our special projects. We have fun and interesting people who join a team to drive our projects to success.
Programs are very important to us. Chair a program and watch it bloom with your team.
We encourage you to promote Mooresville Art Gallery to your friends and family. Word of mouth, sharing our posts on Facebook or any other social media is greatly appeaciated.
