The Westport Schools Permanent Art Collection today received a donation of 20 museum quality paintings by the legendary Westport and Works Progress Administration artist Ralph Boyer (1879-1952) and other artists. Accepting on behalf of the town at a Town Hall ceremony was Westport First Selectman Gordon Joseloff, who is pictured holding a self-portrait of Boyer. The donation also included works by Boyer’s wife, Rebecca Hunt Boyer (1889-1984); by Rebecca Merilees, Boyer’s daughter, and noted etcher Kerr Eby (1889-1945). With Joseloff are (l-r) Westporter Mark Slater, grandnephew of Merrillees, Kathy Bennewitz, co-chairwoman of the Westport Schools Permanent Art Collection; Mark Waskow, an independent curator from Vermont and a neighbor of 90-year old Rebecca Merrillees who helped the family make the donation, and Carole Erger-Fass, co-chairwoman of the Westport Schools Permanent Collection.
