Pendleton Center for the Arts appointed Bonnie Day as coordinator of outreach and education on Monday.

Day will replace former coordinator Greggory Dallas, who left to pursue a medical degree at Portland State University and a future in the health field.

Day comes with a diverse palette of experience. A ceramic artist and teacher, she graduated from University of Oregon with degrees in art from Marylhurst University, where she earned a master’s degree in business administration. She taught after-school classes at a Portland arts center after graduation.

Pendleton Center for the Arts executive director Roberta Lavadour said Day’s blend of business and art background is well suited for the position.

“We’re thrilled to have Bonnie,” said Lavadour.

Responsibilities for the position include scheduling classes, creating new offerings and extending the arts center’s reach beyond Pendleton. This summer, for instance, the center brought in participants from across the region for its Rock & Roll Camp.

Day worked the last five years in Portland but she prefers Pendleton, where she lived for several months in 2009.

“I’m excited to be back,” she said. “It’s the right-sized community.”
