As patrons and supporters of River Arts Inc., you communicate often with Executive Director, Lindsey Giese, and Gallery and Studio Manager, Kristina Coopman, but you rarely get to see the behind the scenes look at what makes River Arts Inc. successful…our board of directors! We are taking the time now to introduce you to some of those people who ensure River Arts Inc.’s sustainability, fiscal responsibility, and who keep us fulfilling our mission to “inspire, enrich, and educate the community through the arts” day after day.
Our next interview is with Amelia Nachreiner
Her interview will be aired Monday, April 27th at 8pm
Amelia was born and raised in Baraboo, WI where she was an active member of the art club in high school. She attended the Minneapolis College of Art and Design where she got her degree in Illustration. After college, she worked as a graphic designer and product designer in Minneapolis for about four years. During that time, she designed a variety of products including holiday décor, stationery, and craft kits for kids. She relocated back to the area last year with her boyfriend and her three-year-old corgi named Ava. In her free time, she loves spending time with family, cooking, making art and helping Kristina out with the RAI art club. Amelia joined the Board of River Arts Inc. last year and is currently the youngest board member!
