E. R. Whelan returns to Craftworks Gallery in Oak Bluffs

I feel fortunate to have my work in two places on Martha's Vineyard this year -- at Night Heron Gallery in Vineyard Haven, and also returning for a second year to that lovely and eclectic Oak Bluffs gallery, Craftworks Gallery at 42 Circuit Avenue. It's impossible to go in there without finding some treasure, all made by American artists and craftspeople!

The work I am painting for them this year is quite peaceful in nature - lovely flowers in rustic arrangements, landscapes and agricultural scenes from around the Vineyard, and other summer memories.

I so enjoy working with gallery owners Paula Cantanese and Ron DiOrio and we all look forward to you visiting and seeing their amazing offerings!
