Photographer Al Pitzner to exhibit works at Westport museum


The Westport Historical Society is pleased to invite you to an exhibit, “Abstracts, People and Flowers,” a title which alludes to only a small part the wide scope of photographic art practiced by Al Pitzner. There are few areas in which he has not involved his creativity, in such depth that our whole gallery could be filled with any one of them many times over. Even the medium used, and the way he presents his art, will vary.

On September 6, from 5-8 p.m., you will see some of the results if you join us at the 1855 Harris-Kearney House Museum for some good wine and hors d'oeuvres, and take the opportunity to sit and talk with Al. The free showing is to be intimate, which will allow a salon sort of discussion about design, art, and their meaning in life. The event is free, though donations are greatly appreciated. On display from September 4-28, this exhibit will be open during regular museum hours, Wednesday through Saturday, from 1-5 p.m.
