Alfred Wertheimer was the guest of honor at a party put on by Govinda Gallery in John Dreyfuss’s studio at Halcyon House, Oct. 22, the night before Wertheimer’s photo show opened at the National Portrait Gallery. Chris Murray of Govinda Gallery collaborated with the Smithsonian on the Wertheimer exhibit, but it was his sister’s roommate from Trinity College who got the star treatment -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She happily embraced Murray whom she has known since he was a boy and greeted most everyone -- and even danced with artist Howard Carr to the music of J.P. McDermott and Western Bop. -- Robert Devaney
