Amy Cavanaugh Royce Selected as EMULSION 2016 Juror

East City Art and Producer Phil Hutinet are pleased to announce the selection of Maryland Art Place Executive Director Amy Cavanaugh Royce who will jury the EMULSION 2016 artist competition.

Amy Cavanaugh Royce has been a Baltimore city resident since 2004. She took her role as Executive Director at Maryland Art Place (MAP) in January 2012 steering MAP back to its original home, located within the Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District. Within in her first years at MAP, Amy worked closely with the Board of Trustees, Staff and Program Advisory Committee to more broadly engage the Maryland statewide arts community, and to amplify the organization’s program initiatives. Today, and under her leadership, MAP has expanded its mission beyond the visual arts by becoming an incubator space for a variety of creative enterprises and artists. Prior to her work at MAP, Amy was the Vice President and COO of ARCH Development Corporation in Washington, DC where she was most notably known for co-founding Honfleur Gallery. Amy is a cellist, native Washingtonian and Alumni of the Catholic University of America.

“In 2007, Amy Cavanaugh Royce’s steadfast vision and belief in DC’s Anacostia neighborhood led her co-found Honfleur Gallery to the benefit of artists living east of the river” says EMULSION Producer Phil Hutinet. “Her record of excellence in the field of fine art and her profound commitment to the artist communities of the greater Washington-Baltimore region make her the ideal candidate for jurying EMULSION 2016.”
