  • At this year’s Chamber of Commerce Annual Awards Banquet, Katie Ganley was selected as the 2019 Artist of the Year for her piece titled, “Crane.” 

    "It’s surreal. A year ago I didn’t even know I was capable of anything like this, I just knew I’d found something I loved doing and wanted to see where it would take me. To finish my first year as an artist and begin my second with this award is just an amazing feeling. I’m looking forward to working closely with the Chamber in 2019 and can’t wait to see what the year brings!" -Katie
