Landscape Artistry

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if instead of just snapping a picture of the places you visit, you could capture each place and time on canvas? It brings to mind an immersion in travel far more complex and thoughtful than mere tourist drivebys. But who has time for such a meditative existence? Artist Christie Scheele, that’s who. Ms. Scheele is referred to as a nonregional landscape painter. Among her favorite locales are the beaches and marshes of the Northeast, the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains, and the views from the highways and bridges of the Hudson Valley and New York City metro area.

From June 30 through July 6, Ms. Scheele will be the featured artist at the Dragonfly Gallery located at 91 Dukes County avenue in Oak Bluffs. For more information, call 508-693-8877 or visit
