Whelan's nautical paintings at Night Heron Gallery

I'm delighted to announce that I am showing (and selling!) my work at the Night Heron Gallery this year, 58 Main Street in Vineyard Haven, MA. The wonderful artists and artisans who make up the collective are an extremely talented group and I am fortunate to be showing with them!

My section of the gallery will be for displaying my oil paintings on nautical and marine themes -- boats, boat building, sailing, woodworking, boat builders, and the working waterfront of Martha's Vineyard.

And what is more, I will also be showing my block prints (both linocut and wood) that I make using a Conrad 24 etching press in my studio. The nautical and woodworking theme is the same although the art is different, and the prints are limited editions, both framed and unframed.

The gallery is open daily 10 am - 5 pm (in the summer until 6 pm). The artists themselves take shifts working in the gallery so you are always talking to an artist when you visit.

I look forward to seeing you there!
