Mary McKinney was named as City Art Works' new assistant director after Bill Cook, longtime assistant director, was diagnosed with cancer.

City Art Works has a new assistant director.

Mary McKinney, former owner of Finders Keepers Antique Shop, took the reins temporarily when Assistant Director Bill Cook voluntarily stepped down to deal with a sudden illness. Battling cancer, Cook made it clear that he wanted someone to take his place, Minden Art Guild Director Steve Wilson said.

Wilson said he wants to continue
