There are new exhibits up at The Granary, Featherstone, Old Sculpin, North Water, Galaxy Gallery and many more art galleries. And ongoing events all over the Island, including the Vineyard Artisans Summer Festival, the Chilmark Flea, and the Oak Bluffs Open Market, offer art, crafts, fashion, home goods and more. Find all the art listings – as well as many more activities for all interests – in The Complete Martha’s Vineyard Calendar.

Happy 351st Birthday, Vineyard Haven! Celebrate the town with music, food, and vendors from local businesses and artists at the Tisbury Street Fair.

There’s a full moon on Wednesday and the Island’s conservation agencies will be celebrating it on water and land.
