FRITZ HENLE SHOW AT JIMMY'S STUDIO

"First Impressions: Fritz Henle's Virgin Islands 1948-1950" is being shown on St. Thomas for the first time.
The show, which includes 37 black and white photographs taken during the artist's first visits to the islands in the late 1940s, is open to the public beginning at 5 p.m. on Friday evenings at Jimmy's Studio on Government Hill.
Most of the photographs, which depict life in the Virgin Islands before the onslaught of major tourism, have never been seen before. Included are images of horsecarts and trading schooners plus the architecture of the islands.
Also included are photos of the faces of the Virgin Islands — young and old, captured in Henle style with all their character and dignity showing.
The show will hang throughout January and will be open on Friday nights during Jimmy's "Wine Down" open house from 5 to 9 p.m. Complimentary wine and tapas will be served.
"First Impressions: Fritz Henle's Virgin Islands 1948-1950" is sponsored
by the V.I. Telephone Corp. and a grant from the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts.
