The Tamaqua Community Arts Center relies on volunteers for everything from daily office help to organizing, preparations and program logistics. With a small staff, it truly is this team of dedicated individuals who make us unique, keep many programs low cost and allow us to offer a tremendous amount of events every week.
Leona M. Rega
Arts Center Coordinator
Leona has been part of the team since May of 2012. While she is not an artist, her background is in customer service, business administration, and event project management. She brings the gift of organization and a heart for the community to her role as leading the volunteers and artists. While tending to the small details for events, you will find her enjoying herself and getting to know the people who attend. Looking to teach, perform or create? Leona is your contact.
Special Events Coordinator
Emily is our Special Events Coordinator. She has a background in Hospitality Management and enjoys doing all of the “behind the scenes” work of an event or art show. She is often times helping her team make sure things are organized and running smoothly while planning and prepping for our next event! Emily can be found in the box office selling tickets on the night of an event or working directly with artists and musicians.
Event Support Staff
Carly is an artist and art major who comes to us with experience as an art gallery coordinator and special events planner. She enjoys sharing her creativity while providing others the opportunity to experience a variety of art. Carly can often be found in the box office selling tickets, checking in students and working with artists to make sure they have all they need to teach. Next time you are here for a class, say hi to Carly, she looks forward to meeting you.
Kyle has been a volunteer with the Arts Center for many years and was a co-organizer of the Tamaqua Has Heart Project. He possesses a natural ability to identify where, how and when we need to market ourselves. Ever look at one of our flyers, brochures or pamphlets? They are all Kyle created and or inspired. He has vast knowledge of social media and can still be found volunteering his time in The Stitch sound booth. Have ideas on what we can do better – share them, Kyle wants to hear from you.
