Dragonfly Fine Arts Gallery and Shephard Fine ArtSpace are collaborating to host a retrospective exhibit of Island painter Nancy Furino’s work from the 1950s to the present.

Ms. Furino, 82, has been living and painting on Island since she moved here in 1980. A Copley Master, she is noted for her colorful impressionist scenes and landscapes.

Don McKillop, of Dragonfly Gallery in Oak Bluffs, has produced a retrospective catalog for sale with 65 images of Ms. Furino’s paintings. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of paintings, giclee prints, and catalogues will benefit two of her favorite charities: Martha’s Vineyard Drive for Life and the Martha’s Vineyard Animal Shelter.

An artist’s reception will be held at the two Arts District galleries on Saturday, Oct. 8. Ms. Furino will be at Dragonfly Fine Arts from 5 to 6:30 pm, and at Shephard Fine ArtSpace from 6:30 to 8 pm. The show runs through October 10.
