KATHY THIESSEN ART GALLERY
In recognition of her initiative and dedication to the arts, the Board of Directors named the Station gallery after its 25-year administrator, Kathy Thiessen. A core group of founding members began working with Thiessen in 1986 to make the dream of a community centre for the arts a reality. Thiessen retired in 2010 and continues to enjoy supporting the Station Arts Centre through volunteering, attending concerts and special events.
