The Naples Art Association (http://naplesart.org), a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, announces its two newest board members.
Andrew Sroka, President and CEO of Fischer International, has volunteered to serve on the Naples Art Association board of directors. Sroka currently serves in a variety of leadership roles throughout Collier County. He is the father of two budding artists and says he always tries to promote art appreciation at home as well as in his professional work. He is keenly interested in the intersection on art and technology, and hopes to help the Naples Art Association along its path to create a unified artistic community in Southwest Florida that brings consistency and communication to the various disparate groups and organizations that exist. He aims to engage the community in celebrating the art that is all around us, promote art education for children, and generally help as needed.
Roger Weatherburn Baker, retired IBM executive, has also accepted an invitation to serve on the Naples Art Association board of directors. With a rich history in art dealing and collecting, and his work with several local art organizations, Baker was a natural fit for the nonprofit. Baker is the owner of International Art Gallery, former manager of the IBM Gallery of Science and Art and a past president of the Naples Fine Art Dealers Association. He says with his skills in communications and art shows, conferences and productions, he looks forward to continuing to contribute to the arts community in ways that that make a difference.
