Mavis Gragg is an attorney and art enthusiast based in Durham, NC. A solo legal practitioner
dealing with death and dirt (estate planning, estate administration, and heirs property), Mavis
also loves to mediate conversation between art and the art consumer. She believes this allows
her to champion making art accessible to her community.

Mavis served as a docent at the prestigious Corcoran Gallery of Art where she also helped raise
money for the Corcoran’s youth arts program as an active member of the 1869 Society. Since
her return to the Bull City (Durham, NC) in 2015, Mavis has continued to prioritize art and
community. In addition to hosting a coloring book party for adults, artists’ talks and studio visits,
Mavis recently curated an art show of work by lawyers. She also plays the Dobra with the
Samba-Reggae drumming group, Batalá Durham.

Mavis is an alumna of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (B.A., Industrial Relations)
and Pepperdine University School of Law (Juris Doctor and Master of Dispute Resolution).
