The Gay Head Gallery, a fine art and photography gallery on State Road, located in the center of Aquinnah, is now open for the summer. This is the second season for the gallery which seeks to promote issues of conservation and sustainability. Several shows are planned for this summer that will integrate art with environmental concerns and issues. Shows also benefit featured non-profits.

The Gay Head Gallery showcases local, regional and nationally-known artists. Island artists and their work include Steve Lohman’s wire sculptures, Doug Kent’s paintings and folk art, and landscapes by Liz Taft and Linda Thompson, among others. Work by Julia Purinton, Rose Abrahamson, Katherine Zens Twombly and seasonal resident, Barbara Norfleet, former senior lecturer and curator of photography at Harvard University, will also be on display.

The gallery is currently open Thursdays through Sundays and by appointment. For more information and exact directions, call 508-645-2776.
