The Blaine Arts Council will feature the work of Coon Rapids photographer and graphic designer Zachary Havelka Sept. 2-27 at Blaine City Hall.

Havelka discovered his passion for photography early in high school. He has been shooting everything from people to landscapes and everything in between. Havelka developed a unique style and an eye for shooting perspectives.

Havelka also designed numerous T-shirts prior to graduating from the Dunwoody College of Technology with an associate’s degree in graphic design. After graduating Havelka quickly found a graphic design job.

Havelka said he, “honestly didn’t know you could make a huge career in the creative business,” but it has been working for him.

Recently, Havelka started taking his photography work more seriously with support from his family and friends.

“We are particularly excited about this month’s exhibit” said Ellie Pflager of the Blaine Arts Council. “Zach is a very talented photographer, and this is his first ever exhibit. We are honored he chose our venue for his premier, and we hope that this is just a start for him.”

The exhibit will consist of approximately 75 pieces and is open to the public with all of the works available for purchase. The exhibit will be on display at Blaine City Hall located at 10801 Town Square Drive NE, Blaine.
