This weekend, the A Gallery in Vineyard Haven introduces a pair of contemporary Island painters, Lily Morris and Billy Hoff, in new show featuring their recent work. Ms. Morris’ partly blurred but vibrant paintings depict dreamlike moments of transformation. Mr. Hoff’s landscapes and figurative paintings are inspired by illustrators like N. C. Wyeth and Howard Pyle, and combine large brushstrokes with intensity of color and emotion.

The A Gallery, located on State Road in Vineyard Haven, is hosting a reception for this show entitled Emergence on Sunday, August 26, from 5 to 8 p.m. The show runs through Sept. 12.
