Program Our Speaker Bill Wierzalis has a background in the humanities as well as in photography, and has traveled widely with his 35mm Pentax to indulge his passion for the Italian culture and people. He's a member of the Maryland Federation of Arts, the Creative Alliance and the Italian Cultural Society. His work has been exhibited in Baltimore, Washington, and New York area galleries, art exhibits and at the Consulate of Italy. He has contributed his photographs and printing services to benefit the Center for Poverty Solutions, the Frederick Arts Council Fundraiser and the Quiet Waters Arts Festival. Bill's 20-year experience in the commercial photography field has allowed him to complete full-cycle the creative process in getting an image from its inception to the printing/framing stage. In these days of digital imaging and electronic media, Bill chooses to personally print his images in order to maintain full control of quality and purpose.

Program Baker Artist Award Winner, Lynne Parks, will share some of her work. Of her art  and photography she says,
“I am drawn to the discarded, forgotten, and obsolete which are by no means inert. I collect fragments, both objects and images, found in the marginal spaces of alleys and abandoned buildings, trash heaps, gutters, salvage yards, and flea market bins.
I was fourteen when I was diagnosed with a rare disease and for thirty-three years, I have been managing several desmoid tumors and metastatic fibrosarcoma. There have been many harsh cancer treatments, operations, and grafts. My artwork reflects what I see in the the mirror - reassembled disparate parts. In the areas surrounding aging, unkempt buildings I become enraptured by unexpected patterns in piles of detritus and the shimmering qualities of oxidation. I identify with broken, patched together things. I am a new kind of patchwork girl. In my work, I hope to achieve a reconstituted wholeness.”
