Steve Harris Jazz Collective!

Delicious Food and Drink! PARTY!

Photographer George Kaczmarek has gravitated to legendary regions around the world and he comes away with the most memorable images ever taken of the subject! Many of these images will be the focus of the award winning exhibition Sunrise to Sunset by featured artist George Kaczmarek in the Showcase Gallery Group Exhibition March 12- April 15th. “Twilight at Delicate Arch, is a masterpiece of photography, says Arizona Highways photographer, Steve Gilb; Kaczmarek captured Delicate Arch, when others are reluctant to make the trek in the cold and forbidding weather.” This image nearly cost Kaczmarek his camera when it fell near a deep black hole in the canyons, one of those bottomless pits!

“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 the world, 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 OCFA Showcase Gallery 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. To see images of Mr. Kaczmarek’s work go to

  1. Although the reception, which was another great success, is over, the Sunrise to Sunset show continues to be open to the public. When entering the Sunrise to Sunset exhibition at the OCFA’s Showcase Gallery at South Coast Plaza Village, any art-lover is immediately rendered speechless by the splendor of George Kaczmarek photography. Presented in large format canvas prints, the award winning images seem to jump from the walls straight into the viewers emotional center. The powerful images by George Kaczmarek opens a doorway to an entire exhibit of works by talented artists. This is a wonderfully curated exhibition for artists, art enthusiasts, and collectors alike.
