Chair / Beverly Knight

Long time resident of Chemainus and a promoter of all things arts. My focus is music but not limited to that. We have a fantastic team on the board who are “all in” to enhance our little town with arts and culture. Looking forward to moving forward after our isolation.

Secretary / Chrissy Kemppi

Chrissy has been involved in the arts scene – on stage, backstage or in-studio – for most of her life. Shortly after moving to Chemainus a few years ago, she started volunteering at Rainforest Arts and then joined the CVCAS Board. During this time, she has also established The Shining Tree Studio where she offers custom fitness services and hosts various arts endeavours. Down the road, she would like to see an amateur theatre group spring up and grow in Chemainus.
