Island Time, October 15-21: The Art of Fall
October 15, 2020
Do you have your pumpkins yet? Your gourds? Your mums? This would be a perfect weekend to visit Island nurseries and farm stands, which are all stocked up for fall decorating (and cooking). While you’re out, why not visit the Island Folk Pottery Sculpture Trail or check out the Trustees of Reservations’ new Brickyard walking trail in Menemsha. Then watch a film, see an art show, or participate in a host of virtual events, all detailed in The Complete Martha’s Vineyard Calendar. Here are some highlights.
Martha’s Vineyard Museum’s outdoor concert series continues tonight with performances by four singer-songwriters:
Phil daRosa, Maryse Smith, David Saw and Darby Patterson. The concert begins at 5:30 p.m. and reservations are required.
You’ll want to visit the West Tisbury Library’s virtual art gallery
through Oct. 29 for a show of art through the seasons by these eight Vineyard artists: Dale Weymouth Julier, Ruth Kirchmeier, Wenonah Madison, Diana Rice, Judith Drew Schubert, Lizzy Schule, Elizabeth Taft and Katy Upson.
At last, a great excuse to head to Back Door Donuts for a treat: On Saturday, October 17 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., 30 percent of all sales will benefit Sandy Paws Rescue in a fundraiser called Donut to Donate
. Information on adopting pets will be available. Leashed dogs are welcome.
