Charlie Gordon – Facilities Manager

970-243-7337, ext. 2

The Art Center team is excited to welcome Charlie Gordon as our Facilities Manager! Born and raised in Grand Junction, Colorado, Gordon has been an active member and volunteer of The Art Center for most of his life. He remembers walking the halls of the center and volunteering as a child. His mother, Rachel Egelston, was also a volunteer before becoming the full-time Youth and Special Needs Education Director. Her love and dedication to our facility’s mission is a trait that she has surely passed on to her children.

Gordon has spent most of his adult life working as a roofer and has adopted a wide range of skills pertaining to building and construction. His calm demeanor, problem-solving skills, work ethic, and willingness to help make the workplace a more joyful environment, and we’re happy to have him onboard.

Join The Art Center in welcoming Charlie Gordon to our team!
