The award-winning Vineyard Gazette and 11 of its photographers team up for a first-ever show that includes coverage of major news events, portraits of Islanders, and fine art images taken on and around Martha’s Vineyard.
The exhibit runs through Oct. 22 at the new Francine Kelly Gallery at Featherstone Center for the Arts.
The exhibit includes prize-winning photography, in both black and white and color, that has appeared over the years in the pages of the Vineyard Gazette or on its website, vineyardgazette.com. The collection includes highlights from the Gazette’s coverage of hurricanes, fires and presidential visits as well as sports, arts and cultural events.
Alongside the Gazette collection, 11 photographers whose images regularly appear in the pages of the Gazette will exhibit their individual work. These are: Ray Ewing, Albert O. Fischer, Tim Johnson, Mark Lovewell, Lanny McDowell, Alison Mead, Steve Myrick, Alison Shaw, Jeanna Shepard, Peter Simon and Maria Thibodeau.
