Arts Visalia Gallery Director
Janelle Howard was born and raised in the Central Valley, primarily Visalia. Janelle attended Golden West High School and graduated in 2003. She graduated from the College of the Sequoias in 2005 with an Associate’s in Fine Art and, in addition, attended the prestigious Art Institute of California in Orange County and graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor’s in Graphic Design.
This background has been useful in the marketing of materials and artworks for the gallery spaces and classes provided to the public through Arts Visalia. Among her many responsibilities, Janelle coordinates with artists for exhibitions, curates the gallery and gift shop, creates collateral for the gallery, and organizes adult and children’s art classes and lesson plans.
