Local photographer Hank Meirowitz’s photographs will be exhibited in the Gloria Cachion Gallery at the Southbury Public Library, during the month of February. The dates of the exhibit are February 1, 2018 through February 27, 2018. The library is located at 100 Poverty Rd. Southbury, CT, 203-262-0626.
Hank’s recent passion for travel finds him in exotic places. He documents faraway lands and indigenous wildlife that many people have seen but not photographed. In the last fifteen years, his travels have included Poland, Russia, Australia, France, India, China,Vietnam, Cambodia, Holland, Belgium, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Antarctica.
During his trip two years ago to Avignon, Aix-en-Provence and Arles in Provence, France, he became so fascinated with the French countryside and small towns outside of Paris that he returned in October 2017 to re-visit the Loire Valley and some of their most famous chateaux. Hank’s exhibit represents his impressions of their beauty in the autumn, the most pleasant season when forests gleam red and gold in the mild sunshine, the restaurants serve succulent local game and wild mushrooms, and the grape harvest is celebrated in towns and villages with many colorful festivals. The opportunity to stay in a private chateau is one of the main treats for visitors; hospitality is a serious business.
The exhibit will be open during regular library hours which are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:30am to 5:30 pm, Tuesday and Thursday 9:30am to 9:00pm, Saturday 9:30am to 4:00pm and Sunday 12:00pm to 5:00pm.
