David Zapatka, December 2017, Gallery

Joint Opening Reception for Stars and Lights by David Zapatka Thursday, December 7, 7:00 pm, on view December 2-28, Gallery: For over four years David Zapatka has been on a photographic odyssey chasing America’s iconic lighthouses on the darkest of dark new moon nights under brilliant stars. His show, Stars and Lights, aims to capture the nation’s lighthouses before the government decommissions and darkens many more of these historical beacons. The series has been captured in David’s newly published book, Stars & Lights: Darkest of Dark Nights. Copies of the book will be available at the reception.

Tom Doran, December 2017, Main Hall

Joint Opening Reception for Ease Your Eyes by Tom Doran, Thursday, December 7, 7:00 pm, on view December 2-28, Gallery: Tom Doran calls these works Pixel Collages. They reflect his fascination with nature, geometry and strong colors. Doran’s Pixel Collage technique uses apps to assemble the pictures. Much like jazz he improvises, stays in the moment and is comfortable with letting go of control. To Doran this art form is a collision of nature and the modern world, at times ironic, funny, eye candy-like, digital, abstract and hopefully, fun.
