SQHAP names new director, Radell to board

— Stone Quarry Hill Art Park, of Cazenovia, recently named Sarah Helbig Webster as director, and Patricia J. Radell to its board of directors.

Webster, who previously acted as office manager at the Art Park, will be responsible for the exhibitions, programming, grounds and administration of the 104-acre outdoor sculpture facility.

She assumes this role following the recent retirement of executive director Joseph Scala.

Prior to joining the workforce at SQHAP, Webster was affiliated with the Madison Arts and Cultural Alliance from 2006 to 2010, where she was on its membership committee. From 2005 to 2007, she was successively vice president and president of a community adult school serving three communities in New Jersey.

Since moving back to Cazenovia, Webster has served on the Board of the Friends of Lorenzo State Historic Site, the Cazenovia Lake Foundation and remains active with community organizations.

“Sarah has hands-on experience in developing programs, expanding membership, and engaging the community actively in support of the arts,” said John Hunt, president of the SQHAP Board of Directors. “We look forward to her continuing and expanded role at the Art Park.”

A graduate of William Smith College, Webster resides in Cazenovia with her husband David and two children.

The SQHAP Board of Directors also recently announced the election of Radell to the board.

Radell was previously chief financial officer of Liverpool Credit Union. She served as director of finance for the Huntington Family Center in Syracuse from 2007 to 2011.

Her prior experience includes more than 15 years as a controller or accounting/financial consultant to local businesses and organizations.

“Patty’s financial background brings an added strength to the board as we plan for the next 20 years of the Art Park,” Hunt said. “Her results-oriented approach has benefited numerous for-profit and non-profit organizations throughout the greater Syracuse area. We are fortunate to have her join the board.”

Radell is a graduate of SUNY Oswego and presently resides in Camden.
