Artist Elaine Werz, Bibbi Valenza

When Bibbi Valenza hosted and organized the premier showing of Camera Art by Elaine Werz at The Galleria, the message was clear: Werz’s art, like her life, refuses reduction. Werz, who has suffered many years with Parkinson’s Disease, has resisted being defined by the illness, and gone on to create extraordinary art and to inspire all who know her. The soiree benefited the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Disease, founded by another indefatigable fighter.
