Head to the Ag Hall this weekend for three days of local art at the 23rd annual Vineyard Artisans Labor Day Weekend Festival. Opening night is Friday, August 31, from 5 to 8 pm, and the festival continues through Saturday, Sept. 1, and Sunday, Sept. 2, from 10 am to 5 pm. This is the largest art show on Martha’s Vineyard, featuring Island artists with unique furniture, clothing, ceramics, jewelry, and fine art. Witness a weaver making a beautiful wool scarf. Watch the creative process of a talented young artist take shape in his latest masterpiece. Listen to the Island’s only female blacksmith describe how she forges her work. A $2 parking fee benefits the Vineyard Artisans Scholarship Fund, which awards several scholarships to graduating MVRHS students.
