Lane Arts Council is excited to welcome Ellen Traylor and Joe Moore to our Board of Directors.
Ellen Traylor, owner of Port Hole Books and Publishing, of Florence and Gardiner, has been elected to the Lane Arts Council Board as a regional representative between the coast and the valley. Traylor’s function will be to facilitate cooperation between the two arts communities, for the benefit of arts development, especially on the coast. Traylor, who grew up in Eugene, attending South Eugene High School and the U of O, has a long association with the area. “I am thrilled to participate in my old hometown as an arts representative for the coast,” she says.
Joe Moore is a U of O graduate and Bend, Oregon native turned local architect and City of Eugene Public Art Committee Chair. Immersed in arts and education while growing up in a teaching family, he continues to pursue the arts through personal practice and public service. He especially appreciates the ability of the arts to foster community through creative expression and shared experience. Joe is an advocate for youth, temporary, and public arts, and he hopes Lane County will continue to emerge as a leader in these areas. He is happy to support the Lane Arts Council as a steward and entrepreneur in arts education and community arts.
