We welcome Elisheba Johnson to our staff as executive and commission liaison. Elisheba will support the director, the office and the Seattle Arts Commission and act as a liaison to the community.
Elisheba is a life-long participant in the arts. Most recently she owned Faire Gallery Café, a multi-use art space that had art exhibitions, music shows, poetry readings and creative gatherings. Being a visual artist, Elisheba brought the community together to create multidisciplinary arts projects at Faire. Elisheba has also volunteered at various arts organizations to help broaden the impact the arts has in the Seattle area. She is now writing for “Curating a Life,” her parenting blog; creating mixed-media art pieces; and finishing up work on a children’s book she co-authored with her father, Charles Johnson. When she is not enjoying an art exhibit with her son, she is volunteering with the parenting support group “Rooting for Mama.”
