Klara Beck grew up in Fergus Falls and attended St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN. She graduated with a BA in Philosophy and Religion and taught reading to elementary students before starting Artsourced, an artist services business that moved her full-time into the art world. She now works as the Executive Director of the Kaddatz Galleries, a non-profit arts organization in downtown Fergus Falls. She and her husband Andy enjoy craft beer and travelling.
Amanda Cross has a BA in Studio Art and is in pursuit of a Visual Arts Licensure for grades K-12 (University of Minnesota, Morris) so that she can integrate her passions for art, building relationships through art, and working with youth.
Amanda enjoyed working as the Summer Education Intern for Kaddatz Galleries for two summers and is thrilled to continue to bring art to the community and draw the community to art through her new role as Education Coordinator. She holds firm to the conviction that art is a powerful impetus that can be used to better understand the world around us, express the world inside us, and ignite motivation that drives change and will work diligently to uphold programming that values the arts.
