summer shows begin

The Gem Gallery has moved into it's summer season of wham bam shows: one or two week shows in the back gallery featuring one or more of the full-time members. Victor Romanyshyn's fabulous display of photographs came and went before I could blink. Or document them.

Currently in the gallery are a mother and daughter duo who visit the island every summer. Here is one of Chris (mom) Harper-Fahey's watercolors:

Her daughter, Dustine Price, has a bolder approach, working in several mediums: painted furniture, painting, assemblage. Between the two of them, they have the gallery covered.

Next up will be Paul Brahms, who will open his solo one-week exhibit of oil paintings on July 16. These two are already in the gallery. Love this funky car in front of a cabin. Many of Paul's paintings document his road travels.

The Gem Gallery is at 62 Island Avenue, left on Welch Street after you hike up from the ferry landing. Hours vary with each artist, but core hours (in a perfect world) are:

Monday to Wednesday: 10 AM - 3 PM
Thursday and Friday: 10 AM - 8 PM
Saturday and Sunday: 10 AM - 5 PM

Stop in, just to meet the artist of the moment and discover what islanders do between boats.
