Art Under The Stars
Featherstone's annual fundraiser, Art Under the Stars, took place Monday evening, July 7, at Farm Neck Golf Club in Oak Bluffs. In addition to "The Art of Living Auction," guests were treated to cocktails, a buffet dinner, and dancing under the tent to the tunes of the Mike Benjamin band.
The Simon Gallery, new to Main Street in Vineyard Haven, carries the familiar work of its two owners, Ronni and Peter Simon. Visitors to the opening reception were treated to display cases filled with Ms. Simon's unique and dramatic bracelets, necklaces, and earrings, handcrafted with semiprecious stones. Mr. Simon's work is well known on the Island and includes everything from calendars to books to poster-sized images. The opening on Saturday, July 5, was a gala event, crowded with family, friends, and admirers.
