Pic Of The Day #920

Art thrives, at the most visible corner in downtown Westport.

A pop-up gallery — with the clever name of Pop’TArt — just opened at 1 Main Street. That’s the juncture of the Post Road, opposite Anthropologie.

Curator/director Jennifer Ruger Haviland relocated from Southampton, for the current show. Artists — who work in oil, photographs, and wood and metal sculpture — include Miggs Burroughs, Mark Yurkiw, Robert Braczyk, Betsey Fowler, Joe Sorge, Monica Bernier and Jim Velgoti.

Below, Haviland welcomes art lovers to the warm, inviting space. It runs through the end of the month. The next show — “Words Matter” — opens November 1.

  1. Great show and opening to demonstrate how Westport can be alive on Main Street to engage people with conversation, culture, and popcorn. Can’t wait for the next show.

    Thank you, Dan. And thank you Westport for a warm welcome to this very unique community. I extend an invitation to all October 1st, 2nd and 3rd for a 3 day opening – 5-7pm each day – for WORDS MATTER.

  3. Thanks Dan,
    I stopped into POP’TART this morning as soon as I saw your post.
    I met Jennifer and welcomed her to town. She hadn’t seen your post and was thrilled to get some publicity.
    What a welcome addition to Westport!
