Reynolda House names Katie Womack Assistant Director of Collections Management
Womack comes to Reynolda House from The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia where she was exhibitions and installations manager.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC.- Reynolda House Museum of American Art has named Katie Womack assistant director of collections management. Womack comes to Reynolda House from The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia where she was exhibitions and installations manager.

Womack brings an extensive background in collections management to the museum. Prior to working at The Fralin Museum of Art, she was collections manager at The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza in Dallas where she helped oversee a federally funded grant project to catalog the museum’s collections. Womack also worked at the Crow Collection of Asian Art in Dallas as collections manager. Her new position at Reynolda House is a homecoming; from 2005-2010 Womack was assistant collections manager at Reynolda House.

As assistant director of collections management, Womack will be responsible for managing the museum’s changing exhibitions, general care and stewardship of the museum’s decorative arts and American art collections, and overseeing requests for loans from the museum’s American art collection. In the past few years, Reynolda House has fielded more than 20 requests for works of art from its collection from museums around the world. Its Georgia O’Keeffe pastel, “Pool in the Woods, Lake George,” recently returned from a three-month stay at the Tate Modern in London, and “For Internal Use Only” by Stuart Davis is on loan to the traveling exhibition “Stuart Davis in Full Swing,” on view now at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

Womack joins a team of collections management staff at Reynolda House who oversee care, conservation, and exhibition of the museum’s nationally recognized collections. Originally from Texas, she holds a bachelor’s degree in ceramics from the University of North Texas and a master’s degree in museum studies from Syracuse University.
