New work at Chilmark library

Boston-based artist, teacher, and longtime Vineyard visitor Elizabeth Carter will exhibit her work at the Chilmark Library from Saturday, June 22, through Friday, July 12. The opening reception is Saturday, June 22, from 3 to 5 pm.

Ms. Carter is a member of Boston’s Galetea Gallery. She has also exhibited recently at the ArtSpace Gallery, the Grace Chapel Gallery, and the Munroe Center for the Arts.

Working in her studio in Newton, she uses a wide variety of materials and techniques — traditional woodcuts, monoprints, monotypes. The repeating elements in her work are both familiar and mysterious. Her work is a reaction to her experience in the natural world and reflects her concern for the environment, according to a press release.

Ms. Carter received a BFA in printmaking from the Mass. College of Art, and an MFA in drawing and printmaking from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. She teaches drawing in the Rhode Island School of Design’s pre-college summer program.
