Impressions of Tuscany: Photographs by Arto Szabo
Les Beaux Arts Gallery is ushering in the New Year with a collection of travel photographs by Arto Szabo, the indefatigable globe trotter whose latest escapade took him to Tuscany in Italy. The exhibit opens on Sunday, January 4 and runs through January 29.
Tuscany is known not only for its beautiful landscape but for its historical centers. It is the birthplace of the Renaissance and the home of many important artists. It was always Szabo's dream to visit Tuscany and photograph the scenery of this ancient Etruscan land.
When asked about it, Szabo explains, "In Tuscany one is surrounded by the views of the constantly changing landscape and the architecture of over 500 year old towns and villages with stone walls and marble churches and castles. It is fascinating to find old hardware objects embedded into the walls. Walking through the streets of Florence and Sienna, one is overwhelmed with the breathtaking beauty of the medieval architecture of the buildings and the timeless piazzas."
As a landscape photographer, Szabo travels around the world searching for historic and interesting places. When he returns, he spends time creating large format photo album books and special exhibitions. He is a resident of Greenwich and studied at the Applied Arts University in Budapest, Hungary. He left Hungary during the 1956 revolution and moved to New York where he studied at Parsons School of Design. He designed furniture for some of the largest manufacturers in the country and after 45 years, retired to spend more time with his beloved photography ventures. His next trip is a photo safari to Tanzania.
Les Beaux Arts Gallery is located at the Round Hill Community Church, 395 Round Hill Road in Greenwich. Gallery hours are Sunday, 11a.m. – Noon; Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.; Closed on Saturday. The Gallery will also be closed Monday, January 19.
