Art - Tops'l

Posted December 13, 2007

At the Louisa Gould Gallery and the Sail Martha's Vineyard office - both on Main Street in Vineyard Haven - maritime art is currently for sale as a benefit for Sail MV, the organization that offers free sailing instruction to Island children as part of its mission, "celebrating and protecting the island's maritime heritage." Last Sunday both venues held concurrent opening receptions, to the delight of lovers of the sea and art.

At Ms. Gould's gallery, five walls are dedicated to Sail Martha's Vineyard art. Ms. Gould said all these works are clearly marked so people will know that their purchase will help the non-profit sailing organization. Nine artists, many local and some from far away, have donated dozens of pieces.

Also at Ms. Gould's gallery is her annual Small Wonders show which features smaller, affordable pieces by Marjorie Mason, Ann Howes, Jules Worthington, Kate Huntington, and Ms. Gould.

The Sail Martha's Vineyard office on Main Street in Vineyard Haven has been turned into an art gallery and maritime gift shop with jewelry, stationary, and calendars.

Louisa Gould Gallery, 54 Main Street, Vineyard Haven, 508-693-7373. Sale continues through Sunday, Dec. 23.

Sail Martha's Vineyard, 110 Main Street, Vineyard Haven, 508-696-7644. Sale continues through Saturday, Dec. 22.
