Featherstone is a community arts center on Martha’s Vineyard, providing excellent
year-round arts programs for Vineyarders and visitors of all ages.

For snow and inclement weather, Featherstone follows the Martha's Vineyard Schools
If Martha's Vineyard Schools are closed then Featherstone will also close.

It is with an extremely heavy heart we share that Francine Kelly, vibrant leader of Featherstone Center for the Arts from 2003 to 2010, passed away on January 8, 2017. Francine loved the arts and all creative pursuits. The woman who never said "no" 
delighted in showcasing the Island's artists and more importantly getting to know 
them on a personal level. Her warm spirit was contagious and her smile infectious.

Francine loved being David Welch's model, and we are grateful for this beautiful photo 
he took of her, capturing her joy.
