Fine arts painter Robert Schaefer is the latest artist to display work at the Vineyard Haven Library as part of the library’s Art in the Stacks initiative.

Recently retired from a 44-year career in the aerospace industry, Mr. Schaefer is now focusing on oil and watercolor painting, living half of the year on the Vineyard where he is a board member of a nonprofit child guidance clinic and the co-chairman of the All Island Art Show in Oak Bluffs, according to a press release. The exhibit features Vineyard scenes in addition to flowers from his own Island garden.

See the exhibit during regular library hours throughout November. For more information, call 508-696-4211 or visit
