Treehouse Studios Requesting Artists
Treehouse Studios, located across from the West Tisbury post office, is asking all artists wishing to participate in its annual Nancy Luce show to contact the gallery at 508-693-6645, or to submit works to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All media will be considered for the show, which will open in October.
Chair And Tables
The theme of Tamar Russell's art exhibit at Mocha Mott's in Vineyard Haven is written in Portuguese on the wall of the café. The English translation is "My chairs are not as heavy as the world." The majority of the Vineyard Haven resident's multimedia work on display is colorful chairs and tables made with plastic stencils, spray paint, colored pencils, and markers. Two of the pieces are collages that combine text and images to explore her Hungarian heritage as well as to pay homage to her 98-year-old grandfather who was imprisoned in a Russian internment camp in the Ukraine during WWII. The work of Ms. Russell, who is part of the production staff of the M.V. Times, will be on display throughout September.
