Will K. Wilkins

Executive Director

“I have always aspired to create an environment where people feel challenged, yet supported.”

Ian Ally-Seals

Cinema Coordinator

“I love making the cinema experience a community experience. We provide something special here you can’t get on your laptop watching Netflix.”

Ana Altiery

Housekeeping

“What I also love about this place is how quickly everything can change.. the artwork – the decorations for events. I remember once we had a grass floor in one of our galleries!”

Alexia Brown

2019-2020 Real Apprentice

David Borawski

Curatorial Advisor

“It’s a great place. RAW takes chances. Always pushing the envelope. You are not going to see anything here that you can see anywhere else in this area.”

Neil Daigle Orians

Visual Arts Manager

“Through my work here I get the opportunity to connect the artist with the community. This gives the audience a deeper understanding of the work, through knowing the artist.”

Mina Echevarria

Front of House Staff

Angie Godoy

Assistant Café Manager

Tricia Haggerty Wenz

Director of Development

“Real Art Ways feeds the curious soul.”

Barbara Hocker

Controller

“The spirit of innovation, collaboration, and creativity has always been a part of who we are. Now we are just more. We do more events, more films, and more concerts. It is more true now than ever that there is always something going on here.”

Maureen Kenna

Member Engagement Manager

“This is such a non-judgmental, welcoming place – where all people can express their true self. And, what we do here – our art, films, education programs, Creative Cocktail Hour – is something you can’t get anywhere else, especially under one roof.”

Jean Paul Leblanc

Business Manager

“A great change is seeing the increase in membership and support. It’s amazing to see how much we have grown and how much we get done with such a small staff.”

Tina Parziale
