Markel Wallace, President

Markel Wallace, born in Ketchikan, raised in Saxman, Alaska, is an emerging young leader in the Ketchikan area.  Markel experienced an early exposure to the arts at a young age with many days spent at the Edwin C. DeWitt Carving Center in Saxman.  She offers hours of time in support of the arts in the Ketchikan Area Arts and Humanities Council with volunteerism cheer.  Markel proudly adds an Alaska Native and American Indian heritage + background to the collective since 2019.  Volunteerism occurs for Markel within other areas throughout the greater community.  Ms. Wallace's interest for all to experience and create the arts aligns with the organization's aim.  She appreciates even the art of preparing a good cup of joe to spark an artistic flow.  Markel resides in Saxman.
