What do your gallery goers ask most often?

Sandra Heaphy, Manager, The John Stobart Gallery, North Summer St. Edgartown: Because we feature John Stobart (born 1929), who paints these historic portraits, people ask if he’s still alive (he is), and when he died (he didn’t). He winters in Florida, and summers in Westport.

Joan Merry, Owner, Gossamer Gallery, State Rd. Chilmark: They ask about the artists and the materials. They want to know about the sculpture, the conditions the artists in Zimbabwe work under, where it all comes from, and how it gets here.
