If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a painting must give Marcel Proust a run for his money. It also means that Martha’s Vineyard is a treasure trove of fine art stories. To help you appreciate the creativity of the island, we’ve rounded up some of the best Martha’s Vineyard art galleries within walking distance of the Square.

 

Edgartown Art Gallery

If only everyday life looked as peacefully pastel as the pieces in Edgartown Art Gallery. Right off of Main Street, a pop into this art hub yields hundreds of contemporary and classic art pieces. From pastels to oil and watercolor, some of these pieces are so realistic you’ll have to check twice to be sure you aren’t looking at a photograph.

 

Martha’s Vineyard Art Association & Old Sculpin Gallery

The Old Sculpin Gallery has worn many hats over the years. It’s been a sail loft, whale oil factory, grain store, boat builder’s shed, and now it’s home to the Martha’s Vineyard Art Association. The waterfront setting and historic building certainly set the tone for creative inspiration. Open for gallery visits during the summer, the building hosts over 100 pieces in its Permanent Collection with monthly exhibit rotations happening throughout the season.

Music in the square at Eisenhauer Gallery

Eisenhauer Gallery

Between summer music in the square and the ever-popular Pastoral Dreamer lounging in the bricks, our neighbors at Eisenhauer Gallery sure know how to capture attention before anyone walks through their doors. Inside, art lovers will find an array of eclectic pieces from around the world, including paintings, sculptures, and jewelry.

 

The Christina Gallery

When it comes to showing The Christina Gallery some love, there’s no need to draw a map to their heart or send a Valentine — they have both on display inside. The downtown gallery focuses on traditional art throughout two spacious floors, with a few unique exhibits that truly set them apart from the herd of Martha’s Vineyard art galleries. If the intricate mosaics of the Sailor’s Valentines series sweep you away, just follow the collection of antique maps and nautical charts to (eventually) land back in modern time.

 

Nikki Sedacca Gallery

If variety is what you’re seeking, the entire Nikki Sedacca Gallery could be described as mixed media. Located right in Nevin Square, the art space is home to a conglomeration of painting styles, but creativity isn’t restricted to the canvas here. Art lovers can also set their sights on intricate jewelry collections, beautiful blown glass sculptures, and other forms of artistic wonder. 

 

When in Martha’s Vineyard, let a wave of inspiration wash over you. Just add this stroll of Martha’s Vineyard art galleries to the list of activities right outside the door when you stay at Vineyard Square!
