Local photographer Peter Zoltai shows that adaptability and passion are key to contentment. His latest exhibition, entitled “Success and Happiness in Life Is Dependent Upon How Well You Adapt to Plan B,” includes many local scenes, as well as stunning scenery from his travels. The public is invited to view the images at the cafe through December and to meet the photographer at a reception on Sunday, Nov. 19 from 2-3:30 p.m. at Carry Out Cafe, 155 State Street in Newburyport.
“Peter is so talented and able to capture the beauty, history, and tranquility of our coastal community,” said Paula Simpson, owner of Carry Out Cafe & Catering. “The holiday shot of Market Square perfectly shows why we love where we live. And, who doesn’t love the famous Red Sox victory? We are thrilled to host his iconic artwork during the remainder of this year.”
A Newburyport resident since 2003, Zoltai’s work has been displayed at Galleries in Minnesota, Montana, and Massachusetts. He has received awards from Essex Heritage Commission, Jewell Towne Vineyards, Land O’Lakes, and the Newburyport Art Association. His photography is highlighted in the current Newburyport Guidebook as well as on the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce website. Zoltai has held several local solo exhibits of his photographs at the Provident Bank, Newburyport Art Association, Michael’s Harborside, Ten Center Street, and the Firehouse Center for the Arts.
The title of this latest solo exhibit is linked to his recent retirement as Senior Director of Research and Development for Hood Dairy after 14 years. “I’m now pursuing ‘Plan B’,” explained Zoltai. This includes photography and donating his time to community activities such as the Newburyport Field of Honor, Derek Hines Flag Day Race, Pennies for Poverty, and Yankee Homecoming for the past several years.
