Impressionist E. J. Paprocki, who joined the gallery in 2020, recently visited Martha’s Vineyard to paint “en plein air” or in the open air. It was his first visit to Martha’s Vineyard, and he promises it will not be his last! “Martha’s Vineyard was, in a word, inspiring. Never have all the visual elements I like to incorporate into my paintings come together in a single location. No editing was needed – I painted what I experienced.”
As we begin the gallery’s 44th season here in Edgartown, we are grateful to continue to do what we love – share our unique art collection with you. This season will be a busy one as pandemic restrictions relax and people move around a bit more.
We are incredibly excited to announce our 2021 Summer Exhibition with Marjorie Mason. Her 2020 exhibition, “Vineyard Landscapes,” was a complete sell-out, so we anticipate another great collection from Marjorie for this season. As was the case last year, we will not host an artists’ reception but plan to feature her collection on the gallery’s main floor beginning on July 1, 2021, and throughout the summer.
We are excited to welcome internationally admired artist E. J. Paprocki to the gallery. E. J. was born in Chicago and picked up his first paintbrush when he was seven years old. His style is in the Impressionists’ manner and prefers painting plein air, where he captures the true spirit of the moment. He also enjoys the interaction he has with people while they pass by him painting on location.
