Shelby, having served in a key marketing and community engagement role for the past two years, has been responsible for bringing the gallery’s message to the community and forging new connections with other non-profit groups, schools and change agents. In her new position, Shelby will oversee all day-to-day operations and management of the gallery, artist-member communications and further community engagement.
Shelby’s efforts have led to additional new classes as well as increased participation in existing classes.
“We couldn’t be happier to have Shelby accept this position,” said LSG board of directors president Jake Hoey. “Her success in building new relationships in Kenosha and with other arts groups helps serve the membership, and it helps keep Lemon Street connected with the broader community.”
Shelby replaces longtime Lemon Street director, Beth Dary. “Beth was the steadying leader that helped keep LSG going strong during the difficult times during and immediately following the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said LSG board past president Rex Davenport. “Many non-profits, especially those with a public presence suffered tremendously during the pandemic.”
“Beth, as an artist-member had a strong connection with her fellow artists. She was also a trusted source of guidance both artistically and on business matters for members.”
Lemon Street Gallery is open Thursday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The gallery is also open by appointment. For information about individual artist members, programs, events and classes, visit lemonstreetgallery.org
