New faces at Eisenhauer Gallery
Elizabeth Eisenhauer is introducing the new artists who are showing at Eisenhauer Gallery in Edgartown. The latest three to join her talent list bring a range of experience and approaches.
Peter Roux resists the label of landscape painter because his focus is on the interaction of the elements that express place, the forms that make up his compositions.
San Francisco area artist Michael-Che Swisher, who began painting Ben & Jerry’s murals, illustrated four children’s books, has her paintings commissioned by Williams-Sonoma, Old Navy, Clorox, Gap Kids and McGraw Hill.
Justin Taylor was born in 1976, worked as an illustrator and designer for various clothing and skateboard companies, before the Art Students League in New York City. His paintings tell stories about human conditions, what it is that connects people.
Beginning next week, the Eisenhauer Gallery hosts a live summer music series on Thursday nights in the courtyard, 6 to 8 pm, Eisenhauer Gallery, 38 N. Water Street. 508-627-7003.
All’s fair on Tuesdays
Featherstone Center for the Arts fifth annual Flea & Fine Arts Market begins Tuesday, June 22, and continues for the next 11 Tuesdays. More than 60 collectors and artists will offer displays of fine art, pottery, vintage linens, jewelry, books, sculpture, clothing, photography, antiques and collectibles.
The market was the idea of former Featherstone Board President, Judy McConnell, who is also a vendor of vintage linens. She saw the continuing event as an opportunity as a fundraiser to help support the nonprofit center’s general operations, such as year-round art classes.
The Featherstone Flea & Fine Arts Market is held on the Featherstone campus off Barnes Road in Oak Bluffs. It will be held Tuesdays, from June 22 through August 31, 9:30 am to 2 pm — unless it is raining. Ample parking. 508-693-1850
