Ramsdens partner joins The Art House as a trustee

The Art House in Wakefield has welcomed Joanne Coen, a partner at Ramsdens, onto its board of trustees.

The Art House provides an expanded programme for artists requiring studio space, time and support. It has a legacy of working with – and providing support for – disabled artists.

Coen, who is head of the child care team at the firm, said that it was an exciting time to be joining the initiative.

“Such fantastic work has been done to provide wonderful opportunities for artists to work within an amazing building,” she said.

“The ambitious artistic programme has national implications as well as international elements – I am really looking forward to supporting the potential being realised for artists especially those who have been disadvantaged.”

John Harris CBE DL, deputy chair of The Art House, said: “We are delighted to welcome Joanne as a trustee of The Art House. This is an exciting time for us as we realise the potential of the organisation in supporting the development of artists in their careers, particularly those who are disadvantaged.”

“Joanne’s work with children and families as well as her legal, business and commercial experience will be very valuable to The Art house as a trustee.”
