A selling exhibition of a spectacular selection of photographs by David Zapatka will be featured at Connecticut Cancer Foundation’s Art Gallery beginning 6 June. An avid photographer since childhood led Zapatka to a successful career as a TV news lensman. Born of his adventurous spirit and a cherished spot in Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay, Dutch Island where he anchored his boat, Zapatka found a new challenge. He wondered what Dutch Island’s lighthouse might look like if somehow it was possible to capture the structure at night under the stars. Zapatka’s five-year odyssey began. To capture as many lighthouses at night before many go dark due to their sale, their decommissioning, or their destruction from sea level rise, became Zapatka’s mission.
This sale exhibition is organized and curated by Marsha Malinowski of Malinowski & Associates, Fine Art Advisory. An opening Reception and Gallery Discussion, open to the public, will be held on 6 June from 5:30-7:30pm. This exhibition is the fourth to be presented in the new CCF Gallery. Malinowski received Zapatka’s book, Stars & Lights, as a gift and made it her business to meet this talented photographer as quickly as possible.
A portion of all sales will be donated to the Connecticut Cancer Foundation to provide direct financial assistance to CT cancer patients and their families. Click for Info
