We are so delighted to have hired two extraordinary people to join the Northfield Arts Guild team: Rachel Haider as the Performing Arts Program Manager and Heather Lawrenz as the Visual Arts Program Manager! The full team will be in place on May 11!
Heather Lawrenz is a jewelry designer who grew up in Eagan, and has resided in Northfield with her husband, Daris, and sassy Mini Schnauzer, Ruby since 2003. She brings over 20 years of retail experience to this position, including management of two Northfield businesses: Glass Garden and Trinket Foundry.
Heather has a BA in Fine Arts and Biology from St. Olaf, and since graduating, has immersed herself into the local arts community of Northfield. Since her time as a 5th-year Art Apprentice, she has served as a committee member of Studio ArTour, and is Co-Chair of the Fine Craft Collective.
As a result of her love of networking, Heather is most excited to expand community awareness of all of the amazing programs the Northfield Arts Guild offers, and to grow the Visual Arts opportunities at the Guild.
