I invite you to join me at an event that will take place on July 22, 2017. Martha’s Vineyard painter Elizabeth R. Whelan has invited 24 Vineyard artists (of which I am honored to be included) and their galleries to participate in this unique public art event. She is painting a portrait of each artist, and will reveal them all on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at the Grange Hall in West Tisbury, Martha’s Vineyard from 1-8pm. It’s a celebration in portrait of 24 of the top Island artists, with an accompanying show of their art.
“The 24 portraits will be unveiled one at a time, 4 an hour for 6 hours! Each artist will also have their own work for sale at the event. It will be a great art show and lots of fun. Join your favorite artists as they view their portrait for the first time, and check out the accompanying top-notch art show by these same artists — over 100 paintings on display and available for purchase!”
For more info and schedule of times, artists and direction check out Artists in Art.
Elizabeth has put together such a fun and unusual art event I can’t wait to be a part of it! I will be sharing my new work for sale at the event and looking forward to seeing my very own Elizabeth Whelan portrait. You can check out my listing page here. I hope you can join the fun for some portion of the day – my portrait is scheduled for reveal at 5 pm and I will most definitely be on hand to see it! Please join us if you can.
By the way, sales of the portraits will benefit two Island non-profits: the Martha’s Vineyard Center for Visual Arts, which provides grant funding to local artists annually, and the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School radio station 105.5-FM WYOB, with a curriculum designed to provide professional radio skills to students.
