A limited number of prints of the 2012 Sea Girt Lighthouse poster – the 4th in an annual series of collectible art prints that capture the landmark in dramatic photos – are now available for purchase.
Robert Varcoe, a lighthouse trustee who conceived of the series to raise funds for the lighthouse, is the photographer and designer of this year’s poster as well as the previous posters.
The 2012 poster shows the lighthouse and its dominating tower in striking silhouette against a stormy cloudy sky at dawn. The poster, measuring 11x17 inches, is printed on heavy coated stock paper and is suitable for framing.
The dramatic print will be on display at the lighthouse for the membership at the annual meeting of the Sea Girt Lighthouse Citizens Committee and during Sunday tours, which are conducted 2-4 p.m., April 15 through November 18, except holiday weekends.
This year’s print as well as posters from previous years can be purchased in person for $15 each. They can also be ordered by mail by sending a check for $21 for purchase, handling and postage to the Sea Girt Lighthouse Citizens Committee, P.O. Box 83, Sea Girt, NJ 08750.
All proceeds go to SGLCC, the all-volunteer, non-profit organization responsible for operating and maintaining the lighthouse.
