Featured MAC Member Story
Corinna Raznikov
Corinna Raznikov moved to Marion from Northern California almost 30 years ago to be with husband, Ron Wisner, the well-known camera manufacturer and photographer. A professional photographer, Corinna has won several awards and exhibited at numerous galleries (such as the Portfolio Gallery in Edinburgh, Scotland, the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco, and the Marion Art Center, to name just a few). In 2016 her body of work titled The Baby Project was installed in the pediatric ward at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Corinna’s other projects include seven years of Vocabulary Day, a photo project fundraiser with Sippican School and Here Comes the Sun, a project created with her son Harry and two local yoga studios. Funds from this project supported Turning Point in Wareham, helping the homeless and near homeless in the tri-town area. Proceeds were also sent to help fund the construction of a new LGBTQ+ youth center in New Bedford.

When the annual MAC-sponsored Halloween parade was cancelled in 2020, Corinna and her son set up an outdoor photo booth and volunteered their time to photograph families and children in costumes on the MAC lawn for a COVID-safe Halloween experience. During COVID, Corinna stopped booking weddings and has since gone back to her first love, photographing families, children and high school seniors. Corinna gifts every family that books a senior portrait a family session for free.

Here is Corinna's MAC Story:

The MAC and its sponsorship of the arts has been the heart of the community for me. From the time my child was little and took dance lessons and participated in ArtStart Camp, to the present guitar lessons and fashion drawing lessons with Catherine Carter, the MAC has been there for our family. My son was recently part of the Midsummer Stages Teen Camp directed by the talented Jacob Sherburne. The MAC continues to innovate and create new programs for Marion and I am so grateful to be a part of all of it.

Corinna has been invaluable to us at the Marion Art Center, volunteering her time and talent many times over. She and her family have supported our auction fundraisers, our new youth programs and classes, and much more. Thank you, Corinna!

SynopsisCedar Beach is about family and a family-owned property. Spanning several generations that covers fifty years, the play attempts to chronicle the history of a vacation home and the vicissitudes of the people who inhabit it. The action follows the lines of entropy, from order to disorder, simplicity to complexity, and tradition to innovation. As such, the home represents both the luxury of privilege and the burden of responsibility. The play is comprised of eight scenes that span from the mid 1950's to 2007.
