For twenty five years, eight artists who live and work on Martha's Vineyard have been meeting monthly to discuss ideas, great exhibitions, books, business goals, and the inspirations that drive their art. The women work in a wide range of mediums -painting, printmaking, clay, fiber, sculpture and paper - and their conversations are always rich. They describe their monthly get-togethers as a "celebration of collaboration, friendship, shared dinners...and ongoing circle of musings on the ever-changing art world".

Nancy Cramer-monotypes, Jennifer McCurdy-porcelain, Sandy Bernat -paper, Leslie Baker-painting, Ruth Kirchmeier -woodcuts, Julia Mitchell-tapestry, Marie Louise Rouff- painting, Heather Sommers- painting and clay.

Artists You Should Know

Opening Reception: October 1

  4-6pm

Gwyn McAllister has been covering the Vineyard art scene for close to 20 years - writing for the Martha's Vineyard Times, Arts&Ideas, Vineyard Style and other publications. Throughout that time she has written about a number of artists who she feels are underrepresented in the gallery world. For this show Gwyn has gathered work from some of her favorite "under the radar" artists to provide an opportunity for guests to discover Island artists who they may be unfamiliar with, and to spotlight some work that she has found fresh, new and exciting.

Ed Schulman, Beth Smith , Billie J Sullivan, Jack Ryan, Renee Balter, Whitney Cleary, Marston Clough, Sandy Bernat and Janet Woodcock.
