Board of Directors

Board of Directors – Suzanne Hazlett, Mary Williams, Annie May,  Judy Pittman, and Sarah Bird

Director Emerita – Brooke Bonner

As the Tour blossoms into its fourth season, so does its leadership and volunteer support. Together WRVST, its collaborators, the valley’s community of artists and passionate volunteers work year round to develop and promote the Wood River Valley Studio Tour as an art experience worthy of participation year after year.  Local, regional and out of state visitors are engaged to develop an audience and following for the artists of the Wood River Valley and the extended community of businesses contributing to the visitors’ experience.  The WRVST board of directors is dedicated to working with the individual artists to maximize the opportunities to gain exposure for their art and promote the greater Wood River Valley arts community.
