Keady at sunset

Catch Chappy singer-songwriter Kevin Keady outdoors at Featherstone Center for the Arts, Oak Bluffs, next Monday, July 18, at 6 pm. The show is part of the on-going Musical Mondays series.

Ohhh, the water!

The annual Water Tasting by the Sea takes place this Friday at Barbara Boch’s waterfront home in Edgartown. The event, which benefits Vineyard House alcohol and drug recovery programs, will feature gourmet food, fine waters, and live music. New to the line-up this year will be a silent auction with donations coming from Cheryl Stark, Allen Whiting, and Bramhall and Dunn among others.

Water Tasting by the Sea, Friday, July 15, 5 to 7 pm, Boch Estate, Edgartown. Recommended donation is $25; larger donations are welcome.

Summer concert series rolls on

The Performer’s Workshop summer concert series continues tonight, July 14, at 7:30 pm at Katharine Cornell Theater in Vineyard Haven. Concerts are free and will feature the performances of the group’s students and teachers. The last concert will be on Friday, July 22, 7:30 pm at the First Congregational Church of West Tisbury.

The Performer’s Workshop, a non-profit organization, trains singers and pianists in the performing arts. The concerts are free, but donations are accepted.

Self-exploration and art

The Body Project MV will present “Beyond the Body: Expressions of Identity: A Retrospective” on Sunday, July 17, 5 to 7 pm, at the Sailing Camp, Barnes Road, Oak Bluffs. The program, begun in 2003, was designed to help women build a healthy self-image and sense of confidence through artistic expression. To date, there have been three sessions, in which artist Basia Jaworska, psychologist Jane Dreeben, and Lyndsay Famariss have worked with a multi-generational group of women for a 10-week period. Each participant created a piece of art using the medium of her choice to express who she is. Through the process, the women not only created expressive artwork, but also moved into deeper self-awareness. Sunday’s show features all art created during the three sessions.

Light and color at Gardner Colby

The Gardner Colby Gallery in Edgartown hosts “The Color of Light” beginning with an opening reception this evening, July 14, 6 to 9 pm. One featured artist is Robert Cardinal who is known for painting solitary barns, lighthouses, and Cape Cod cottages with a distinctively bold use of color, light, and shadow with a dramatic effect. Sharing the show is M. Katherine Hurley whose landscapes range from soft, misty fields to brilliantly colorful scenes.

A look at global warming

The Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation hosts a benefit talk by Laurie David, “Global Warming: a Multifaceted Approach,” next Tuesday, July 18. Ms. David, a trustee of the Natural Resources Defense Council and member of the advisory board of California’s Children’s Nature Institute, is involved in many environmental activities. She will speak at the Hannan home on Stonewall Pond, Chilmark, 5 to 7 pm. Wine and hors d’oeuvres served. $45 benefits Sheriff’s Meadow. For reservations, call 508-693-5207.
