BECKLEY, WV -

The general manager at Tamarack has announced her retirement, effective June 14.

Cheryl Hartley has served in that capacity since June 2000. She 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.

"I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to contribute to such an important project. Tamarack is held in high esteem across the nation."

"During Cheryl's 14 years managing Tamarack, it has continued to be a model for other states to emulate and has become internationally synonymous with high quality craft," said Greg Barr, general manager of the West Virginia Parkways Authority. "Tamarack has an economic impact for every county in the state and enhances the image of West Virginia to millions of visitors."

Tamarack, the nation's first retail center for juried handcrafts, opened in June 1996. It represents over 2000 West Virginia artisans, selling their handcrafts in the retail facility. Located near the Harper Road exit of the West Virginia Turnpike near Beckley, Tamarack has a restaurant, art gallery, theater and conference center in addition to its retail space. It is owned by the West Virginia Parkways Authority.
