There is plenty of exciting things going on in Edgartown this summer, but here at the Kelley House it is the summer of the Kelley House Gallery. The gallery features the work of 17 photographers as both framed prints and as a rotating display of images on 6 flat screen monitors. Both Kelley House guests and the public are able to view 419 photographs in this unique and inspired combination of mediums.
While the Kelley House Gallery opened late summer 2015, this summer has hosted the “Meet the Photographer” receptions every Thursday since the start of summer.
The receptions, held every Thursday from 5:30pm to 7:30pm and are open to the public. Each reception features a different photographer whose work has been hanging in the Kelley House the past year. Visitor and guests alike are able to meet the artist and discuss their work.
Since we here at the Kelley House are lucky enough to be located on a spot as stunning as Martha’s Vineyard, it is fitting that the work featured in the Kelley House Gallery celebrates the beauty of the island. While the subject matter is not exclusive to photos of the island, all the photographers featured in the gallery are ones for whom the island is a special place. This comes out clearly in the images on display, many of which capture Vineyard moments with a unique perspective and perceptive eye.
The Kelley House Gallery located in the lobby of the Kelley House is open 24/7, but will be hosting Meet the Photographer receptions now through early September. Be sure to join us on Thursdays from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm! For more information, please visit our website and follow us on Facebook for up-to-date news!
