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

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.

Thank you for your cards, prayers, hugs and donations!
We are overwhelmed by the community's outpouring of love and support 
in celebration of Francine!

Joshua Robinson White 

April 10 - May 22

Lucy Vincent at Dusk

  Joshua was born in Barbados at the end of an 8-year, round the world trip that his parents and Australian born brother had completed on a 28 ft sailboat. At less than a year old, he moved from the boat to a small shed on Martha's Vineyard. Other then two winters living on his parents custom built sailboat in the Caribbean, he spent his entire life growing up on the Vineyard. At 18 he moved to Southern California, where he received a degree in Finance from San Diego State. After 6 years in California, the inevitable pull of Island life brought him back. He now resides on the Vineyard year-round and specializes in capturing unique perspectives of everyday, often overlooked subjects.
