Scott Lawrimore, the deputy director of the Frye Art Museum, will resign from his post in June after less than two years at the Frye. He’ll be moving to “a newly-created position at a local institution,” the details of which have yet to be made public.

While at the Frye, Lawrimore curated “Buster Simpson // Surveyor,” a retrospective of the local artist’s work, along with “Chamber Music,” a survey of 36 Seattle-based artists’ takes on James Joyce’s only book of poetry.

In a phone conversation on Friday (April 18), Frye director Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker noted that exhibitions are already scheduled into the early months of 2015: “So we do have a window there to find the right person to come to the Frye. I’m very optimistic that we’ll be doing that within a reasonable period of time.”

Upcoming shows that Lawrimore has had a hand in are “Your Feast Has Ended: Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes, Nicholas Galanin, and Nep Sidhu” (co-curated with Birnie Danzker and scheduled to open June 14) and “Aaron Flint Jamison: Veneer 10 of 18,” coming May 15.

“Aaron Flint Jamison” is entirely “Scott’s baby,” said Birnie Danzker, and is part of the ongoing “Frye Salon” program. Flint is based in Portland, where he runs a magazine called Veneer. The exhibit/event will be a co-production between Veneer and the Frye.

Lawrimore also made a significant impact on the Seattle art scene with The Lawrimore Project, a gallery he ran before being hired on at the Frye.
