“Years in the Making” Exhibit Debuts Monday

WestportNow.com Image
The Westport Historical Society’s newest exhibit, “Years in the Making: Ageless Artists, Ageless Art,” a show of recent works by 50 Westport and Weston artists ages 70 and older, opens Monday and runs through Sept. 9. The exhibit challenges the notion that creativity is limited to the younger generation. The “Heads & Hands” exhibit in the Society’s Little Gallery is a photographic tribute to these 50 ageless artists by photographer Kristin Rasich Fox. As part of “The Years in the Making” project, film documentary maker Martin West interviewed and filmed the 50 artists at work and recorded their stories on a DVD. The material will become a part of the Westport Schools Permanent Art Collection. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Larry Untermeyer for WestportNow.com
