An ‘Exciting Time’ For the James Museum

Robin Nicholson, who has more than 30 years of international experience in the museum and curatorial fields, has been named executive director of The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art. “He brings extensive insight into leading a non-profit art institution and wide-ranging knowledge from working in the for-profit and gallery worlds,” according to an announcement from the musuem located in downtown St. Petersburg. Mr. Nicholson has directed the “outward-facing” aspects of American art museums over the past 16 years at the Telfair Museums in Savannah, GA; The Frick Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, VA. “I look forward to continuing the legacy of Executive
Director Laura Hine and her talented staff, the devoted board of trustees,
our donors and supporters, and above all, Tom and Mary James and their
family to ensure that The James Museum flourishes, grows and expands the horizons of its unique collections,” Mr. Nicholson said. Director of Development Debbie Sokolov will serve as the museum’s interim executive director until Mr. Nicholson starts on June 1. /Photo of Mr. Nicholson courtesy of the James Museum.
