“The Coast – A Collaboration” at BIG ARTS features evening of photography, music and poetry
“The Coast – A Collaboration,” an evening of photography, music and poetry featuring Charles Sobczak, a Sanibel writer, and his son, Logan Sobczak, a composer, will take place at BIG ARTS Phillips Gallery Thursday, November 10, at 7:30 p.m.
The evening includes a presentation of some of the best nature photography ever taken. Charles will present spoken prose followed by a composition inspired by that work, and, conversely, Logan will play a piece and Charles will read a poem based on the music. A Q&A session with wine and cheese will follow.
Charles Sobczak is a well-known writer whose works include Six Mornings on Sanibel, Way Under Contract, Living Sanibel – A Nature Guide to Sanibel & Captiva Islands, and, most recently, The Living Gulf Coast – A Nature Guide to Southwest Florida, which has been chosen as a finalist for the President’s Book Award by the Florida Publishers Association. Many of his works have won national and regional awards and he was awarded the Angels of the Arts Award for Writer of the Year in 2005 by the Alliance for the Arts.
Logan Sobczak is a recent graduate of the University of Florida. He holds double major in Philosophy and Political Science and plans to continue his education at the Chicago Art Institute in 2012. He has played piano since he was twelve and started writing original compositions shortly thereafter.
