William H. Blakesley memorial is Friday

A memorial gathering for William H. Blakesley will be held at 2 pm on Friday, June 21, at Trinity Methodist Church in the Campground in Oak Bluffs. Mr. Blakesley died on September 17, 2012, at the age of 91.

A power-point presentation of his work will be shown, accompanied by the Momenta Quartet from New York City.

Nathaniel Horwitz will play the harp at the side of the tent where refreshments will be served.

Mr. Blakesley’s studio in Montgomery Square will be open following the service, not with the intention of selling his paintings but for one last look at them before they are removed.
