From Megan Ottens-Sargent:

Sunday August 14 from 5 to 8pm

Grand Re-Opening of the Gay Head Gallery with an Artists’ Reception and Benefit for the Vineyard Conservation Society and the Moshup Trail Project

Starting August 12 – 26, an exhibit of paintings, photographs, and other works of art inspired by the globally rare Southeastern New England Coastal Heathand habitat of the Moshup Trail Project area, will be on view and available for purchase at the Gallery, with a Public Reception on Sunday August 14 from 5 to 8.

A main focus of this benefit is to fundraise for VCS and the Moshup Trail Project not only through the sale of fine art . The evening will involve a short presentation about this important conservation effort that VCS has taken the lead on. We hope that the art and the talks on Sunday evening will inspire members of our community to become members of the Vineyard Conservation Society, and to consider further support to help fund future land acquisition and legal defense.

Works by a number of artists including Doug Kent, Steven Kleinrock, Ellen Liman, Steve Lohman, Jake Meegan, Lucy Mitchell, Peggy Roth Major, Mary Elizabeth Pratt, Julia Purintan, Elizabeth Taft, Linda Thompson, Dan VanLandingham, Wendy Weldon, Rez Williams, among others, will serve to inspire each of us to both appreciate and to participate in protecting our natural resources.

Megan Ottens-Sargent, owner of the Gay Head Gallery, will also announce the opening of “the Rare and Endangered ” the new Conservation Center that is part of the Gallery.
