The Connecticut Cancer Foundation Fine Arts Program
The Connecticut Cancer Foundation Fine Arts Program was founded in 2015 with the purpose of raising awareness for the visual arts as well as generating support for the Foundation’s mission through the curation and sponsorship of public exhibitions, gala fundraising events as well as the donation of artwork from benefactors to the permanent collection of the Connecticut Cancer Foundation. The art will be exhibited and viewed by cancer patients and those affected by cancer for aesthetic and therapeutic experiences.
The Connecticut Cancer Foundation Fine Art Board is led by a formal subcommittee of three art world professionals possessing significant credentials and affiliations with Sotheby’s, the Smithsonian Institution, the Library of Congress, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Museum of Fine Arts Boston among others.
The Fine Arts Program is accepting corporate and individual donations of fine art to benefit the Foundation’s mission. Please contact CCF’s Executive Director for a confidential discussion.
Stars & Lighthouses: The Night Photography of David Zapatka.

Philanthropy through Fine Art
15 North Main Street, Old Saybrook, CT 06475
June 6th through September 6th, 2019
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 6, 2019, 5:30-7:30p.m.
A selling exhibition of a spectacular selection of photographs by David Zapatka will be featured at Connecticut Cancer Foundation’s Art Gallery beginning on 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.
Zapatka explains: “It was while researching a little-known Connecticut lighthouse, Tongue Point in Bridgeport, I discovered that few night pictures of lighthouses exist. I’d already captured about thirty other lighthouses within an hour of our home in Rhode Island before this realization convinced me that the project had never before been attempted. This is the largest single collection of these historical beacons captured in such a dramatic fashion.”
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.
