Mac is back.
The Village of Port Jefferson and the Port Jeff Conservancy are co-sponsoring an art exhibit that will be held in the memory of late Port Jefferson artist Mac Titmus.
From Aug. 27 to Oct. 25, Titmus’ art will be on display at the Port Jefferson Village Center on the third-floor gallery.
Titmus, who died suddenly at 72 this summer, was well known in the area for using his computer skills to make fantastical works of art that created an abstract reality for the viewer. He also used his artwork to raise money for several charitable causes.
“Mac was a beautiful man who looked at life through a kaleidoscope,” said event organizer, Diana Walker, who also owns The Shelf in the village. “His art represents the palette of possibilities the world has to offer.”
On Friday, Aug. 30, there will be a reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the village center to celebrate the new gallery.
The exhibit will be open to the public during the buildings hours, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
