A breathtaking masterpiece taken by George Kaczmarek came with a story of falling near a deep black hole in the canyons.
SUNRISE TO SUNSET INSPIRES ORANGE COUNTY ARTISTS
Award winning international photographer George Kaczmarek is the featured artist in the first ‘Sunrise to Sunset’ exhibition at the non-profit OCFA’s Showcase Gallery at South Coast Plaza Village. The free opening reception is from 4 PM – 7 PM on Saturday, 12th March.
George Kaczmarek has gravitated to regions of the world that are legendary and sometimes hazardous in order to capture his remarkable images. His style is to immerse himself in the environment and absorb the character of a landscape, animal or small detail that catches his eye.
George thinks nothing of taking risks to get the shot: ‘Twilight at Delicate Arch’, for example, is an image that nearly cost him his camera when he fell near a deep black hole in the canyons. The resulting image however, is a masterpiece of photography that demonstrates George’s willingness to make the trek in cold and forbidding weather to capture an image to share with the world.
Says Showcase Gallery Director Margie Zuliani: “George Kaczmarek's work in the Sunrise to Sunset Exhibition at Showcase Gallery is a breath taking presentation; over twenty powerful award winning images taken throughout North America, one of a kind images that rival many of the greatest pictures ever taken. Mr Kaczmarek's exhibition is a memorable example of the great achievement of
photography in the digital era.”
George Kaczmarek and juried members of the OCFA exhibiting in the ‘Sunrise to Sunset’ will meet guests at the reception to talk about their work. Live music is provided by the Steve Harris Jazz Collective, and refreshments and appetizers will be served.
