Memorial Day weekend is upon us and I can’t believe that we are beginning our 38th summer season here on the Vineyard. Yes, I was a freshman in high school when we first opened in 1977! Actually, my dad and I came up with the idea to start a retail business and we didn’t tell my mom until we were ready to open. At that time she was working for the Fligor family across the street.
During the early days we sold vintage photographs of Martha’s Vineyard from the mid 1800’s. As each year passed, we expanded upon our collection and inventory and new artists to gradually grow into what we are known for today, an established traditional fine art gallery. It was in 1994 that I formally took over the gallery business and it became The Christina Gallery.
