As of today, executive director Bill Mercer will no longer work at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center. Mercer, who was appointed late last year and started Jan. 1, had his "contract canceled" by the Sangre's board of trustees.

When Mercer's hire was announced in October, the Sangre stood behind its decision despite Mercer having been fired from the Portland Art Museum in 2007 for violating a no-tolerance agreement he had signed.

Sangre will not comment on the situation, per the institution's lawyer. (From the press release, "all personnel matters are confidential.")

Sangre controller Rochelle Spoone will serve as an interim ED.
