The Field Gallery and Sculpture Garden is a unique exhibition environment. Inside, three galleries present rotating exhibits of contemporary paintings, sculpture and photography. Outside, the large field is home to the ever enchanting sculptures of Field Gallery founder Tom Maley. The gallery represents over 30 talented artists, each with a unique island connection.
Artist receptions are held Sunday afternoons from 5 to 7 pm throughout the summer and have become an island tradition. We invite you to join us, sip cocktails and enjoy the latest show.

Whether he intended to or not Tom Maley has brought playful laughter to thousands of people. His first larger than life figure was made in the mid sixties in the field in West Tisbury. From that point on Tom continued to experiment with different materials, later using mostly urethane foam, fiberglass and epoxy. In the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s Tom made and sold a number of oversized, white sculptures as well as many tabletop sized versions. These figures are currently reproduced in verdigris bronze and sold through the Field Gallery as limited editions.
The Field Gallery was built in 1971 as a co-op by Tom and friends who wanted a unique environment in which to exhibit their art. Little has changed over the years as the gallery still hosts an impressive group of talented artists works to be viewed in person and now online.
Sculpture is only one of the art forms Tom employed over his lifetime. He was a painter in acrylics, oils and watercolors. He also loved to draw, producing hundreds of sketches, some softly romantic, others abstract and angular. Tom Maley continued to enjoy working at his art until the day he died in August of 2000.
