Board and Staff

The North Hills Art Center is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization governed by a dedicated, volunteer Board of Directors comprised of business and civic leaders from the community, artists and creative professionals, and local patrons of the arts. The Board meets monthly. Members of the Board chair annual events such as the Wine and Beer Tastings, Summer Solstice Raku Party and the Artisan Markets.  

Two part-time employees run the “day to day” operations at the Art Center: an Executive Director and Operations Manager.

And of course we couldn’t do all we do without our devoted volunteers who assist with everything from gardening, maintenance, office assistance and more.
