Jamie Balliet, director of marketing at the State Theatre Center for the Arts in Easton, will open the 2004-05 Arts Career Exploration Series 12:15 p.m. today, starting the Arts Society’s second program of informal discussions designed to introduce students to the wide variety of careers in the non-performance arts.

Previously, Balliet worked in the box office at Pennsylvania Playhouse and did volunteer press work for Open Space Gallery.
