Darien Arts Center Presents ‘Light Songs’ Exhibit

The Darien Arts Center will host Light Songs, an exhibit of photography, graphics and artistic improvisations from award-winning photographers and artists, Jim Stasiak and Barbara Soares. The exhibit of over 30 works of art runs from June 7 through 12, from 10am to 5pm, in the Darien Arts Center (DAC) Weatherstone Studio, with an opening reception on June 7 from 6 to 9pm, where the artists will be in attendance and wine and light bites will be served. Admission to the reception and exhibit are free, with 20 percent of art sale proceeds to benefit the DAC.

Jim Stasiak is an award-winning photographic artist, musician and graphic arts professional. Embodied in his own use of digital imaging is Stasiak’s belief that digital applications are specialized tools that can expand the creative range and perception of the artist in an intuitive, beneficial manner. “Our awareness of the universe changes almost daily. A simple moment in time encompasses multiple dimensions, energy waves of incredibly long and short frequencies, and undefined anomalies,” says Stasiak.

Barbara Soares, MA, is an award-winning fine art photographer, Reiki master, musician and sound healing practitioner. Her “Renewal” photograph recently won first honors in the Shoreline Arts Alliance 2023 IMAGES Juried photography show. “My work represents a Zen meditation in seeing, photographing and printing images as ‘visual haiku’ that entice the viewer to perceive the world in a different light and composition,” says Soares. “Passion, resonance, shadow and light, form and movement, essence of the moment, essence of the heart—these are the raw materials I draw from and live for.”

This exhibit is made possible by a generous grant from The Borman Family Foundation. Reservations for the complimentary opening reception at are appreciated.
