MEET OUR DIRECTOR

Kat Davis

director@pearlofthepecos.org | 575.628.3768

 

Kathleen Davis, better known as "Kat", grew up in Ireland  and has resided in the United States for the last 11 years, where she graduated from Carlsbad High School in 2012.

Her artistic, diverse, & eclectic background along her interest in encouraging a wide range of artistic pursuits are the driving force behind her dedication to the artist community in Carlsbad.

“Art can mean something different to anyone that you ask and that’s something that makes it so beautiful, no two answers will ever be the same,” she noted. “While music is my ‘art of choice’, I have a profound respect and love for all art forms.”

Davis believes that the many challenges of 2020 have allowed people to tap into their creative and artistic sides in ways they have never seen before.

The Pearl of the Pecos Arts & Culture District is a diverse and thriving epicenter for arts and culture in Carlsbad, which supports art education and economic development. As director, Davis will works closely with the Creative Carlsbad Arts Council, Carlsbad MainStreet and the Fine Arts and Acquisition Vetting Committee in promoting the arts in Carlsbad..
