The Shenandoah Arts Council is a nonprofit organization whose part-time staff of two is dedicated to maintaining and expanding the important work that ShenArts accomplishes in the community.
Christy Broy | Programming & Exhibits
Christy Broy develops programming for ShenArts including all workshops/classes, Teen Art Club, and the Emerging Artist Program. She designs, manages, and installs all ShenArts exhibitions, occasionally acting as curator. She is a liaison between the council, member artists, and the arts community and maintains ShenArts’ social media accounts and website.
Christy, who also works as a Lead Educator at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley, is herself an artist, curator, writer, and educator who studied Fine Art & Art History at the University of Virginia. She also spent time studying film in NYC and is a co-host of the Alamo Winchester Film Club. She is dedicated to creating communities and opportunities within the arts locally, and on a broader stage whenever possible.

Lisa Sipp | Fundraising & Grants
Lisa Sipp has been part-time staff with ShenArts since October 2018. Her responsibilities include grant writing and compliance, fundraising, donor management, member database management, and daily communication via phone and email, to name a few.
Lisa enjoys teaching violin to beginners from age 4 to 94. She has a master’s degree in Special Education, an alternative secondary teaching degree, a BA in Humanities, and an AA in Communication and Journalism. Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Lisa moved to Winchester in early 2018 from the mountains of northern New Mexico, but has Virginia roots as recent as her parents and grandparents from southwest Virginia to ancestors who settled in Virginia in the 1600s. Lisa is married to David, a ShenArts artist member who is often seen supporting and serving ShenArts wherever he is needed.
