There’s a paint-off going on this weekend and everyone is invited to check it out. Called Painting the Vineyard and benefiting The Trustees of Reservations, the event involves local artists painting on site at five Trustees locations on the Island and Chappaquiddick. Artists will be painting at Mytoi, Wasque Point and Cape Pogue on Chappaquiddick; Norton Point Beach (Katama) in Edgartown; and Long Point Wildlife Refuge in West Tisbury. There will be transportation available from the Chappy ferry to the Chappaquiddick sites.
The painters begin working Friday, June 28, and continue on Saturday, June 29, from 9 a.m. to noon and then from 3 to 6 p.m. on both days.
An artists’ reception will be held on Sunday, June 30, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Old Sculpin Gallery on Dock street in Edgartown. Visitors can meet the artists, check out the art and buy paintings created during the weekend. There will also be work on display at the gallery by students from West Tisbury and Edgartown who visited The Trustees sites this spring and created paintings of their own.
The Trustees of Reservations offer a reduced admission cost of $2 per person at all the sites this weekend, and there’s a reduced ferry rate for paint-out viewers.
