The general manager of Tamarack, the country's first retail center for juried handcrafted items, will retire in June.
Cheryl Hartley has worked for Tamarack for 14 years, and will continue to serve on the boards of the West Virginia Humanities Council and the World Crafts Council of North America.
"I’ve enjoyed meeting the diverse people who visit Tamarack and particularly appreciate West Virginia’s talented artisans," Hartley said in a news release. "I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to contribute to such an important project. Tamarack is held in very high esteem around the nation."
Tamarack represents more than 2,000 West Virginia artisans, selling their handcrafts in the retail facility near Beckley. A restaurant, art gallery, theater and conference center are also part of Tamarack, which is owned by the West Viginia Parkways Authority.
