The collection reflects Fisher’s ability to blur the lines between design, illustration and art, and reveals the long-lasting impact that he has made in his lifetime, according to Helen Klisser During, WAC’s artistic director who curated the exhibit.

The retrospective includes 48 paintings, drawings, and illustrations from Fisher’s prolific 70-year career, during which he designed 10 U.S. postage stamps. The exhibition will range from his earliest drawings to his latest works.

This popular yearly gathering raises the bulk of the funds needed to sponsor and house eight academically-gifted young men who attend Staples High School because of the lack of quality educational opportunities in their home communities.

The A Better Chance of Westport program, which began in 2002, is an affiliate of the national organization A Better Chance, which focuses on transforming the lives of minority youth through educational opportunity in cities and towns across the country.

All of the eight current Westport scholars, as well as many of the 16 alumni of the program, will be in attendance at The Dream Event. There will be entertainment, dinner, auction items and a number of surprises. Tickets may be purchased at the A Better Chance of Westport website.

Two weeks after denying a report that it had closed (see WestportNow March 4, 2015), Westport’s Tierra Restaurant in the basement of the Old Town Hall, 90 Post Road East, has closed, according to Rob Haroun, who owns the building. The restaurant with Latin-inspired cuisine had been open less than one year (see WestportNow May 30, 2014). “We’re sorry to see them leave,” said Haroun. “Meanwhile, we’ve been approached by a number of potential tenants looking to enter the Westport market and would not be surprised if an announcement is made in the next few weeks.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
