Current Exhibition: Warren Gaines January 27 to February 23
A life long resident of the island of Martha's Vineyard, award winning artist Warren Gaines immerses himself in his surrounding environment which not only motivates him, but also gives him a profound sense of peace. Deeply connected to the environment, the images he selects to share with the world are true to life colorful renderings which are close to and drawn from his heart. Belonging to a family of artists and environmental conservationists before him, Warren also spends a loft of his time on the water as a shellfish warden and as an aquaculturist; replenishing our oceans with scallops, quahogs and oysters, which bring a lot of joy to locals and visitors alike. Warren truly loves what he does, both on and off the water. It amazes him how deeply a piece of art can touch another person's soul.
