Oil painter Paul Beebe has been painting since the age of 15. His fascination with marine subjects began over 30 years ago, after his first visit to the Vineyard, where he became inspired and drawn to its maritime history and nautical views. Join him at the Louisa Gould Gallery in Vineyard Haven, which houses his exhibit “Summer by the Sea,” for a meet and greet. Friday, August 5, from 4 to 7 pm.
