Brian joined the team in Spring of 2022, he is a cheerful addition and keeping all of our finances in order.
Janis started out as a volunteer and was hired on when we realized what a great asset she was to the organization. She oversees the Arts Education Program which provides intensive arts lessons by our 16 teaching artists in the local schools and also art sessions through Dementia Support Northwest.
We are thrilled to have Deanna on board as our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Consultant. She has a wealth of experience working in the arts including the National Museum of the American Indian- Smithsonian Institution, Sculpture Northwest and Native Arts Collective.
Liz volunteered for over a year before she became Program Assistant. She works with the artists on the festival and events and assists with marketing. She is also currently attending WWU for her masters in Anthropology.
Xandra Blackburn is our new (as of this year) gallery assistant and coordinator, though she’s volunteered in various capacities for a couple years now. She is a lifelong artist, art evangelist, and a human in love with the universe. She’s done a small variety of work, including tutoring college writing students, framing art, and slinging burritos, but working at Allied Arts is definitely the best entry in the list!
