Lighthouses of the United States
Paintings by Alfred La Banca Exhibit

April 28-May 26, 2024
Opening Reception April 28th at 2pm

Alfred La Banca was born in New York City in 1930. His family spent summers in New Dorp, Staten Island, and so began his love for coastal communities. He owned three IOR-rated sailboats and competed from Maine to Florida – including Newport, Annapolis, Fort Lauderdale and Key West.

Lighthouses were his passion. He called them the “Vanishing Castles of America”. Sadly, these beautiful marine castles are disappearing, often abandoned or destroyed. It was the hope of Alfred LaBanca to rekindle America’s passion with lighthouses through his beautiful watercolor paintings.

His work has been selected for Ritz Carlton Hotels, York Wallpaper and many local art shows.

He was a member of the United States Airforce, New York Yacht Club, New York Athletic Club Yacht Club, Corinthians, Storm Trysail Club and the Noroton Yacht Club.

The La Banca Lighthouse Collection has over 250 paintings. We hope you enjoy viewing this wonderful collection and perhaps think of Al LaBanca when you see a lighthouse.
