Judy Taylor, Bookkeeper
We have lost count of how many years Judy has been involved with bookkeeping for the organization. She has also been a vital component in the coordination of our Holiday Festival of the Arts and Chalk ArtFest.
Katy Tolles, Artist Services Coordinator
Katy started out as a volunteer and was hired on when we realized what a great asset she was to the organization. She oversees the programs that promote retail art sales such as our rotating gallery exhibits and the booth coordination for our two festivals.
