Works by Elizabethtown photographer David Toczko have been selected to be showcased in two exhibits in Kentucky.

The Kentucky Arts Council selected Toxkzo’s photography for inclusion in the Governor’s Derby Exhibition in the Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort. The exhibit will include Toczko’s photos “Land Between the Lakes Sunset,” “Balloon Glow” and “West Point Bridge,” which were chosen for the theme “Kentucky Landscapes.”

The Governor’s Derby Exhibition is displayed through May 16.

Toczko’s work also was selected for display in the main tasting room of Maker’s Mark Distillery’s visitor center in Loretto.

The Maker’s Mark exhibit features photographs from Toczko’s upcoming book, “The Ambassador of Bourbon, Maker’s Mark and the Rebirth of America’s Native Spirit,” which is scheduled for release in September.

The centerpiece of the exhibit is a mural of a bottle of Maker’s Mark being dipped in red wax. The mural will cover the entire 17 feet by 17 feet wall. Seven other images depicting aspects of Maker’s Mark’s process, such as milling and distillation and hand rotation of barrels, will be displayed on the wall under glass with the mural as a backdrop.

Toczko, whose work has been published internationally, is owner of Lone Dakota Photography in Elizabethtown.
