Dancing in the Light
October 7 - November 12

This retrospective exhibition highlights dance photographs by Arthur Fink. He had been a tireless proponent of photographing dancers in rehearsal and performance, especially at the Bates Dance Festival.
Arthur’s passion for beauty, art, and culture came naturally – an aesthetic educated and well nourished. He observed and learned from his internationally recognized Madison Ave. graphic designer father, Karl Fink, and his mother, Sona Holman Fink, a fashion editor for the international fashion magazine, Women’s Wear Daily. He balanced his artistic passions with his brilliant curiosity and mastery of his science. Arthur received his undergraduate degree in physics, from Swarthmore and was a doctoral candidate at Harvard, studying artificial intelligence.
His artistic expression was a multi-faceted, finely cut soulful curiosity. He had a reverence for all of life, most especially dance photography.
Arthur passed on April 21, 2021 and leaves a legacy of passion, inspiration, and the brilliance of powerful photographs.
