Greg Bartol joined our board in 2014, and serves on the Strategic Planning and Program Development Committees, primarily focused on membership.

Until 2003, Greg’s 30 year career was in Law Enforcement (he held the rank of Sgt for 28 years) and included patrol, SWAT, Special Teams and Bikes at Seattle-Tacoma Airport.  Concurrently, Greg served in the U.S. Army Reserve, including mobilization in 1990 for Desert Storm to Washington D.C. where his Unit did protection on Dick Cheney and Colin Powell (retired as Major).

His metal work is presently in four galleries: artEAST, Auburn Valley Creative Arts (AVCA), MATTER (recycle art) in Olympia and Freed Gallery in Lincoln City, Oregon.  Greg has co-curated five exhibits in three cities, most recently Crow/Raven in Issaquah 2014.  He collaborates regularly with several local artists.

Greg presently serves as the President of the Welding Advisory Board, and is on the General Advisory Council at Green River College. He is a volunteer in the Welding Technologies Program and has been asked to grow an art program in the welding shop.  Greg owns and operates Studio B Custom Design for metal art work.
