River Arts is pleased to announce the appointment of a new gallery manager, Amy Appell.  With a varied background in her employment, primarily in education, Appell brings skills that will be valuable in her new management roll.  In addition to teaching elementary school, she has managed her own business teaching mindfulness and meditation where she has developed her organizational, administrative skills and computer savvy.

Since then, I recognize it as a gem of a gallery. Needless to say, I am thrilled to be the new gallery manager at River Arts. My goal is to entice everyone to visit, in order to see the variety, and become inspired!”
