Library Marks Opening of George Wright Exhibit

WestportNow.com Image
The Westport Public Library tonight hosted a reception marking the opening of the exhibit, “A Retrospective on the Work of George Hand Wright (1872-1951): Dean of Westport Artists. ” A master of many media, Wright was gifted in the use of watercolor, pastels, and etching, which became in his later years his most favored medium of expression. He left a treasure trove of art for generations to come and provided a visual history of what was, during his lifetime, the rural, small town of Westport.  Edward F. Gerber, a distant relative, took those attending on a tour of the paintings on display, including one depicting Wright’s Cross Highway home of more than 50 years. The exhibit runs through Nov. 30.
