Photographer captures moods of seashore with exhibit at NOVA-Alexandria

Toth's Seashore Memories Sicily #3

Seashore Memories-Sicily #3 by Peter Toth.

Fine art photographer Peter Toth will exhibit “Songs of the Shore,” a collection of archived inkjet photographic prints from Friday, February 7 through Sunday, March 16 at the Margaret W. and Joseph L. Fisher Art Gallery. The gallery is located in the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall & Arts Center at Northern Virginia Community College’s Alexandria Campus.

An opening reception will take place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, February 7. The gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and during performances. Both the opening reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.

Through his photography, Toth’s goal is to create images that embody a delicate, lyrical sensitivity where the interplay of light, color, composition and the special effects created layer by layer in his computer meet to enhance the emotive tone of each image.

Toth was born in Hungary and received his bachelor’s degree from Indiana University. He has established himself as a highly regarded and award-winning advertising professional over the last three decades. His commercial work has won over 300 national and international awards. Today, he devotes himself to experimenting and nurturing his fine art photography into significant bodies of work. He resides in Chantilly, VA.

The Fisher Art Gallery is located on the upper level of the Schlesinger Center, 3001 North Beauregard St., Alexandria, VA 22311.
