Martha’s Vineyard was made for artists. The Island’s stunning seascapes, rural vistas and dramatic sunsets practically demand creative interpretation. And what better way to see the Island than through an artist’s eyes? The Granary Family of art galleries offers three unique windows into art appreciation, Island-style.
These aren’t your grandmother’s galleries! Whether you’re a seasoned art-collector or simply art-curious, Granary, Field and North Water Galleries are ready to welcome you with friendly and knowledgable staff, comfortable grounds and the best paintings, photography and sculpture the Island has to offer.
So bring the kids, bring a date, or bring a picnic lunch. From downtown Edgartown to West Tisbury center, the Granary family invites you to pARTicipate in art this summer!
Voted Best of the Vineyard for 24 years, the family-friendly Granary Gallery features indoor gallery space and an art-filled courtyard. This season, we’re excited to welcome up-and-coming Island painter Dan VanLandingham and Cuttyhunk newcomer Tamalin Baumgarten, in addition to the exquisite paintings of Heather Neill, Thomas Hart Benton, Scott Terry, David Wallis, Mary Sipp Green, Jeanne Staples, Alison Shaw photography, American photojournalist Alfred Eisenstaedt and more.
Looking for that perfect Island keepsake or wedding gift? With more than just paintings, the Granary is your one-stop-art-shop in the heart of West Tisbury.

Outside, the large field is home to the whimsical sculptures of Field Gallery founder Thomas Maley, the modern stone sculptures of Lew French and many others. The original selfie paradise!
