Boat building takes its cultural place with architecture and fine art in the watercolor drawings of Maine artist Abe Goodale, on display at the Workshop Gallery in Vineyard Haven this weekend. Mr. Goodale’s portraits of shipwrights at work, including Islander Ross Gannon of Gannon and Benjamin Marine Railway, quietly celebrate their craftsmanship and concentration in detailed graphite drawings washed with subtle color.

“His skill set is obviously something to be admired — he is just incredible,” said Workshop partner Wil Sideman.
