Westport Historical Society Presents A New Exhibit: Framing the Past, Present and Future

Event Date/Time

Sep 27, 2013 to Jan 2, 2014

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

Westport Historical Society Presents A New Exhibit: Framing the Past, Present and Future

Westport’s graceful old farmhouses, wooded landscapes and scenic beaches and inlets have long found favor with artists, and starting next month the town will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the awards it bestows as a special thank-you to these creative residents.

As part of the tribute, the Westport Historical Society will host “Framing the Past, Present and Future: 20 Years of The Westport Arts Awards,” which opens Sept. 27 and runs through Jan. 2.  

In all, the retrospective will feature more than 45 original works — paintings, drawings, illustrations, comics, etchings, photographs and sculptures on loan from regional museums, private collections, the Town of Westport, the Westport Schools Permanent Art Collection and the artists themselves. 

The artist lineup includes Stevan Dohanos, Jak Kovatch, John Steuart Curry, James Daugherty, Arthur Dove, George Hand Wright, Kerr Eby, Robert Lamdbin and Hardie Gramatky to James and Laura Fraser, Stanley Bleifeld, John Held, Paul Cadmus, Jean Woodham, Jordan Wolfson, Howard Munce and photojournalist Lynsey Addario among others.

“Framing the Past” is being organized by the Westport Historical Society and the Westport Arts Advisory Committee (WAAC), which selects the annual award recipients.  The exhibit will be accompanied by lectures, films and video segments on Westport, interviews with the artists and their recollections of colleagues, institutions, events and traditions that shaped Westport’s artist community. 

Join us on September 27 from 5:30 to 7:30 for the opening reception of Framing the Past, Present and Future: 20 Years of the Westport Arts Awards.
