The Westport Fishermen’s Association is pleased to announce the opening of new exhibit showcasing large scale photos of the Westport River by Greg Stone. ‘Westport Dawning’ will be on display at the Horseneck Point Lifesaving Station Visitor Center, 241 East Beach Rd., Westport from June 30th to Sept 2nd.
As Greg has said: "… Dawn. It is a time of hope and inspiration - a time of special beauty when the sky takes fire with nature's light show, all of nature awakens, and the rivers, streams and marshes pulse with life. We need to celebrate that beauty and we need to preserve it. Let us recognize the multitude of the river’s gifts - gifts of spirit, gifts of recreation, and gifts of sustenance - and let us make sure we pass these treasures on down to future generations."
Tour the Westport River by the dawn’s early light and in all seasons through these beautiful images, which will also be accompanied by pictures of the river at risk. Although the river and its salt marshes are resilient, they are under siege. With this show, the WFA encourages both appreciation of the special wonder and value of the river and a recognition of the threats to its health.
The exhibit is FREE and open to the public on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 12 to 4 pm. An opening reception with free refreshments will be held on Saturday, June 30th from 2 to 4 pm. Selected reprints as well as photo cards will be available for sale, with all proceeds supporting the WFA’s Clean Water fund.
‘Westport Dawning’ is funded in part by a grant administered by the Westport Cultural Council and with support from the Hanover Group Insurance Foundation.
