Zahn Community Gallery at the Middlesex Hospital Shoreline Medical Center in Westbrook. In partnership with the New England Large Format Photography Collective, the Photographers Fighting Cancer event benefits the Cancer Center.
This fast-paced event combines the energy of a fine art auction with the drama of a lottery drawing. There are a limited number of Gallery tickets available for sale and each Gallery ticket holder walks away with a one-of-a-kind, museum-quality matted photograph – while supporting excellent cancer care in the community.
Large-format photography refers to images produced using 4” x 5” film, or larger, allowing for higher resolution. The art form utilizes bellows cameras, and darkroom silver gelatin or platinum processing to produce prints of unparalleled detail.
Gallery tickets are $125, which includes the reception and one matted print to take home. Reception-only tickets are $30. For tickets, go to middlesexhospital.org/photo

THE FRIENDS OF FORT TRUMBULL S.P. TO PRESENT THE SUPERINTENDENT OF THE COAST GUARD ACADEMY;

Fort Trumbull Conference Center, 90 Walbach St., New London, CT , 06320

As the final speaker in the 2014 program- “The Whaling City: Past, Present, and Future”- the Friends of Fort Trumbull S.P. proudly present Rear Adm. Sandra L. Stosz, Superintendent of the Coast Guard Academy in New London. Rear Adm. Stosz will speak on “The U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London: Locally Relevant, Nationally Prominent”.

Rear Adm. Stosz has set many precedents in her career. A 1982 graduate of the Coast Guard Academy, Stosz also holds a Master of Business Administration from Northwestern University. In 1990, while a Coast Guard lieutenant, Stosz became the first woman to command a Coast Guard cutter in the Great Lakes. She spent about 12 years at sea, fulfilling her longtime goal to command both an ice-breaking tug and a medium –endurance cutter in the North Atlantic and the Caribbean. In 2010, she was chosen by the (then) Commandant of the United States Coast Guard ADM Robert J. Papp, to become the first woman to lead a United States military service academy, when she became the 40th Superintendent of the Coast Guard Academy.

The presentation will take place on Thursday, October 30, 2014, at 7 p.m. at the Fort Trumbull Conference Center. The public is invited, but seating is limited. New members are always welcome. Refreshments will follow the program.

There are endless photo opportunities throughout the day including relaxing in an authentic living room, posing with Roaring 20's characters, and taking a ride aboard the locomotive.
