The embattled chairman of The Art Center at Fuller Lodge has resigned.

Phil Kilgour of Chimayo was charged Monday with assault and resigned Tuesday through a letter read by ACFL Attorney Tracey Conner during the board’s general membership meeting in the Pajarito Room of Fuller Lodge.

“It is with the greatest reluctance that I tender my resignation as chairman and board member of the Art Center at Fuller Lodge … Although we are not residents of Los Alamos, we have given of our time and talents to make the Art Center a major contributing organization to this community. The Art Center has improved measurably under my stewardship and has over the past five years gone from a parochial, small town program to one that is now poised for national recognition among community supported art centers in the country.”

In his letter, Kilgour also commends himself, former chair Mary Carol Williams and former director Gloria Gilmore House for working “tirelessly” to make sure that the Art Center is governed by nationally recognized nonprofit standards and the rule of law.

“The revision and review of the Bylaws and the creation of a Standard Operations Manual has put the Art Center at the forefront of art centers in the country,” Kilgour said in his letter.
