When the New York Times ran a pre-Christmas review of the musicology find of the year (a 1957 recording of John Coltrane and Thelonius Monk), it was a photograph of 'Trane taken by Bay area resident Herb Snitzer that accompanied it. Snitzer is a local treasure; a longtime magazine photographer who worked for Life in its heyday, Snitzer is internationally known for his portraits of great artists. His latest exhibit, A Time Remembered, includes 14 photographs of such figures as Tennessee Williams, Bette Davis, Stuart Davis, John Cage, Louis Armstrong and Leonard Bernstein, plus some urban landscapes. The opening reception, which occurs from 2 to 4 p.m. Sat., Jan. 7, features Snitzer and is free and open to the public. Through Jan. 31, Safety Harbor Library, 101 Second St. N., 727-724-1525, www.tblc.org/shpl.
