Donald Verger has enjoyed a long-lasting, caring fondness for Mercy Hospital’s mission and supports the organization whenever he gets a chance. He’ll be participating in a Vendor Fair in the lobby of the gorgeous new Fore River Mercy Hospital campus, and donating 100% of the proceeds to the hospital’s cause. For that matter, all vendors at this fair are donating proceeds from their sales to the hospital, so there’s a lot of good work (and shopping) be be done!

Don was saying earlier today that it will be interesting to sell his Fine Art Photography Poster Calendars only a stone’s-throw away from his permanent gallery around the corner, a space that was dedicated to his mother that rotates with fresh works of photography about 4 times a year. He plans to rotate the current offerings out in January, so the fair this Thursday will be a good opportunity to catch these beautifully framed, large-format pieces before the new ones come in.

Want a peek at those Fine Art Photography Poster Calendars? You can see them on Calendars.com, Amazon.com, and of course, at his website, donaldverger.com.

At the peak of Munjoy Hill is the cozy Hilltop Cafe which housed Donald Verger‘s most recent show “Faces of Innocence”. This show featured a collection of work which focuses on a new subject, instead of the familiar lighthouses and nature scenes, Verger presents his audience with images of people. His style still holds onto the beautiful use of color, luminous light, as well as patience and the eye to catch that perfect moment. The photography embodies a new personality, people are caught in moments going about their daily lives, and presented for us to examine. Character shines through this collection and Verger’s photography is brought to a much more personal level as you see eye to eye with smiling strangers you’ve never met, but somehow feel that you’ve gotten to know then though the art alone.

Donald Verger has been working on his Innocence Project Benefit shows in order to aid and support The Innocence Project, a nonprofit organization based in New York, dedicated to freeing individuals accused and imprisoned for crimes they did not commit. This organization is also helping to fix problems in the criminal justice system which allow such errors to occur. Verger was a victim of misidentification and now uses his story as inspiration and his photography as a medium to help others.

Thank you for the support of all those who have come to shows and donated to the Innocence Project.

This picture, taken on the Opening Reception for The Innocence Project Benefit at the North Star Cafe, shows Eileen Skinner, President and CEO of Mercy Hospital, and photographer, Donald Verger, sharing a laugh. Donald Verger’s opening reception raised over $2,000 for the nonprofit organization in New York. Eileen Skinner made a leadership donation to the Innocence Project, which Verger matched, also donating his image “Dawn of Peace”. Mr. Verger’s healing work is displayed in a rotating gallery in Mercy Hospital, a donation from this award winning photographer to be enjoyed by both the patients and staff. For more information about how you can help Mercy hospital, visit their page about giving to the hospital.

The show in the North Star Cafe lasted through the month of March, now for the month of April a new show will be on display at the Hilltop Cafe in Portland, ME.
