Photographer, Philanthropist, Community Leader
Massachusetts native and photographer Diane Amato has joined FRANK Gallery's board of directors. After moving to North Carolina in 1996, Amato became involved in art and philanthropy and opened a photography studio, photographing artwork for local artists as well as making and exhibiting her own work.
Amato works at Preservation Durham and is currently the chair of the board of Liberty Arts. She served on the board of Durham Habitat for Humanity Restore as treasurer and then president and also joined the board of Chatham County Arts Council as treasurer. In 2009, she founded The Art of Giving, a giving circle committed to granting money to Triangle non-profits with programs benefiting women and children. Since its founding, The Art of Giving has awarded $120,000. FRANK is delighted to welcome Diane Amato to our board. With her rich experience and dedicated involvement in non-profits and the arts, she will be a great asset as FRANK moves forward in the new year and in a new location.
