The Woods Hall Board is excited that Janine Dobson is our new Woods Hall Gallery and Studio Manager! Janine brings valuable experience to the position which includes being an island resident, past board member, weaving studio member, and former small business owner. In addition, Janine brings twenty years of administration experience to Woods Hall. Tyna is
working with Janine to make a smooth transition. Woods Hall Gallery is open from 11 am until 3 pm Thursday- Sunday. Please stop by or reach out to welcome Janine.

In Janine’s own words:
“I have found Woods Hall to be a place of joy and happiness. It’s an all inclusive creative space
that is magical to all that step inside. I feel comfort in the rock fireplace and original wood
planked floor that holds the history of a community that came together to weave and connect
with other humans. The financial benefit to the island artists is one of the keys to many working
to survive on a small island in Lake Superior.”

We are excited to welcome Janine and thankful for Tyna’s help with the transition. Having a year-round manager allows us to support better the artists of Woods Hall which is possible due to your continued support for which we are most grateful.

With gratitude,

Louise Parker
Woods Hall Board Chair
