Gretchen's husband and daughter

Gretchen Feldman – Vineyard Reflections

Playhouse Art Space

The late Gretchen Feldman's luminous paintings depict exquisite and eternal themes: where land meets sea, day embraces night, sky kisses earth and all the color and radiance inherent in that balanced and alchemical sacred cycle of union and touch. A surprise diagnosis of lung cancer intensified her subsequent artistic explorations.

Harry Seymour

Harry Seymour – The Vineyard in Black and White

Playhouse Art Space

This show comprises what Seymour describes as "negative giglees", and represents a retrospective of his work done over the past decade of painting on the Island. Unlike typical giglee prints that simply duplicate original paintings, his derivative giglees have been manipulated digitally, adding alterations that are themselves a part of the creative process. Although the most significant alteration is the conversion from color to black and white, there are other subtle changes from the original works.

Katherine Reid – Myriad Moments

Playhouse Art Space

Artist's Reception: Saturday, June 25, 2016 4 to 6 pm

As a native Islander and the daughter of an avid fisherman, scrimshaw artist, Island nurse and character, fishing has been part of my family life since I was young. I recall watching the rugged fishermen casting off their vessels at the docks in Menemsha to haul in their catches, and watching my father fly fish at the OB Steamship Authority beach, the line whipping through the air with deft precision. Vineyard Sound nestles us in its arms, provides for and protects our lives through our occupations, recreation and nostalgia. The importance of protecting our water is visible even in the very eyes of the island’s inhabitants.

ed-schulman-2-6-16-3

Ed Schulman – Winter Bright

Playhouse Art Space

Mr. Schulman has a style that is unlike any other artist on the Vineyard, and he is easily recognizable as his own. He uses a limited palette of muted colors favoring brick tones, grayish blues, off whites, and grays. He tends to favor the linear, making good use of somewhat elongated vertical figures — people, buildings, sailboats. His style could be called primitive but, more accurately, his paintings are highly stylized yet he makes perfect sense of his subjects with limited, well-placed lines, palette knife strokes, lots of texture, and a few daubs of color or white.
