Jody Clowes has been director of the Academy's James Watrous Gallery since 2014. She is also the arts editor for Wisconsin People & Ideas magazine. Jody has spent her career developing and curating exhibits, designing public programs, and writing about art, including senior positions at Milwaukee Art Museum, Detroit's Pewabic Pottery, and the UW-Madison's Design Gallery. Her exhibition projects emphasize connections between contemporary art and other disciplines and issues, from environmental concerns to social and economic history, technological change, and the history of craft. She has a B.A. in Art and Art History from Rutgers University and an M.A. in material culture studies from the University of Delaware's Winterthur Program in Early American Culture. Jody spent her formative years in the southeast, the mid-Atlantic, and New England, but has learned to love the Midwestern landscape; she and her family have called Madison home since 1994. An eclectic reader, mad gardener, and stubbornly improvisational cook, she is happiest with her hands in the dirt.
