Brown Bag Luncheon Series

New Brown-Bag Luncheon Series Lecture on Wood-Cut Exhibit Set for April 20
The Westport Historical Society (WHS) will kick off its new, free, lunchtime lecture series at noon on Monday, April 20, with a talk by Robert and Ann Levine about their remarkable folk-art collection of wood carvings. A portion of their extensive collection, entitled Presidents, Politicians and Popular Heroes,  is currently being shown in the Betty and Ralph Sheffer Gallery.
This talk, the initial offering in an ongoing program planned for the third Monday of the month, will focus on the current exhibit, while future lectures will cover a variety of topics of interest both to Westporters and other Fairfield County residents. The programs will be free to all.  Attendees are asked to bring their own brown-bag lunches and WHS will provide coffee and cookies.
Hundreds have already seen the unusual wood-cut collection, which ends its run on May 3, and this lecture provides new insights from the perspective of the collectors, both for first-time viewers and those who have already experienced it.
Attendees can experience a bonus experience by viewing the exhibit of birdhouses  that had been donated to the Project Return Birdhouse auction through the years.  These delightful and innovative pieces are on view in the Little Gallery through May 3.
Both members and non-members, are welcomed to the free lecture.
Those wishing more information may call Margaret LeBedis 226-3601.
