This is indeed the most delightful time of the year to spend on the Vineyard. The days are warm, nights are cool and the air is very refreshing. The Islanders you haven’t seen all summer are milling about now that the crowds have somewhat retreated back to the mainland. We already miss visiting with our summer clients; however it is kind of nice to take a step back to enjoy this beautiful island we live on.
The Striped Bass Derby started over the weekend and every other car that drives by the gallery has at least two or three fishing rods on their roof rack. In some respects Island life seems to come to a complete stop for people who enjoy fishing. And with this beautiful weather it’s hard to argue with taking a day off to do so.
Next month, the Martha’ Vineyard Food & Wine Festival will take place October 16 – 19, 2014. There is an extraordinary line up of culinary events and yet another wonderful reason to visit the Vineyard. And though the summer season is behind us, we continue to receive in new works from our artists, including those featured here by William R. Davis, Mitch Billis and David Bareford.
