Rachelyn Noworyta

Executive Director

Hello! Most of you know me around here as “Rae”, the one whose always
running around with her hands full exclaiming, “I lost my coffee!” (Don’t worry,
that’s not going to change). For those of you who don’t know me, let me introduce
myself: My name is Rachelyn Noworyta. I have been the Programming and
Education Director for the past year. Before that I was the contract services
coordinator (aka special services) and ceramics instructor here at LSA.
It has been such a pleasure, over the last 3 years, really getting to know
Locust Street and the community in which it resides. Most of all I have had such joy
getting to know all of you and making sure I am doing all I can to bring you the best
art experience possible.
With that said, I am honored and humbled to have been selected as the new
Executive Director of Locust Street Art. I would like to take the time to thank the
hiring/selection committee, the Board of Directors, and my friends and family for all
their support; but most all of I want to thank you all of you for accepting me into the
Locust Street Art family. I promise to continue to do everything I can to provide you
with everything you know and love about LSA and more.

Dana Fischer

Administrative Assistant

When I was young I kept busy with drawing, painting, and all the arts and crafts I could get my hands on! Locust Street Art is so inspiring to me, and I wish I knew about LSA when I was a kid. I love that Locust Street Art provides FREE ART CLASSES! Originally I started college as a nutrition major but quickly realized that art was NOT just a hobby and switched to graphic design and happily received my Bachelor’s of Art in Visual Communication from Buffalo State College. When I’m not behind the computer, you might find me as one of your LSA Instructors! Besides graphic work I am also a photographer with a focus on natural lifestyle portraits and travel based photography. Traveling is a huge passion of mine and documenting it has been just as fun. I can’t wait to share my knowledge with you and help Locust Street Art as their Administrative Assistant.
