Following that, administrative assistant Kristen O'Neill will enlighten all of us with "35,000 years of art history in 15 minutes!" Kristen is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her job at the museum includes the inventory at Gallery One (the museum's retail gallery which houses art from over 60 local artists), community calendars, social media, and our volunteers (in addition to helping with all of the museum events and spearheading "Open Studios"). She also teaches classes at the museum for adults and children. The recent series "How to paint like a famous artist" has delighted many local people.
Kristen moved here from Santa Cruz and has two adorable daughters. As an accomplished artist, her work may be seen in various locations in Southern Oregon. Right now, some of her paintings are at Rogue Coffee Roasters.
