Art on the Green announces staff changes

Art on the Green’s Gallery Director Brenda McClain announces staff changes.

"Parilee Croft, Assistant Gallery Director, has decided to take a step back to work on new projects, with emphasis on her creative endeavors,” McClain said. "We were fortunate to have Parilee on staff since the Gallery's inception. Her contribution was significant to success Art on the Green continues to enjoy. Her painting has been taking a back seat to the Gallery.

We love her art and look forward to seeing more of her work in the Gallery.”

Kelly Booy has been named Gallery Manager and will assume many of Croft's duties, continuing her role working within the art community teaching and spearheading children's art contests, art classes, along with the Gallery's newest initiative, City Talks.

"Kelly and her family - four children and her husband, Stefan - are well-traveled and bring a different perspective to our artists' works.

Contact Booy by email, to schedule a tour for your group or your students.

Kate Hoopchuk is now Creative Director.

"This promotion is well-deserved, we feel fortunate to have Kate on our team,” McClain said. “She has an eye for what works for the Gallery.”

Hoopchuk will be working with the Gallery's photographers to create an online store of our artists' works.

Photographers interested in Art on the Green's representation should email photo samples to Hoopchuk by email

Art on the Green is an artistic vortex drawing, skilled artists and art lovers alike can enjoy.

It’s a symphony of artwork that touches the heart and inspires the mind, making Art on the Green a refuge from the hustle of modern day life.

“The art collections are amazing,” McClain said. “Peace of mind is a bonus.”
