Art on the Vine Plans to Transform Martha's Vineyard with One-Day Art Exhibition

Art on the Vine at the Historic Dr. Fisher's House
On Tuesday, August 16, 2016, The Agora Culture will present Art on the Vine, a one-day art exhibition that is set to transform Martha's Vineyard. This event will be held at the historic Dr. Daniel Fisher House in Edgartown from 1 PM to 8 PM. Art on the Vine will feature over 20 contemporary artists of color, highlighting 100 available works of art, and featuring educational seminars aimed for both new and seasoned collectors.

According to Jessica Stafford Davis, founder of Art on the Vine and The Agora Culture, "Art on the Vine provides a major platform for contemporary artists of color to showcase their work. This event is one-of-a-kind because of our ability to bring investment grade pieces to the Vineyard for art enthusiasts at all levels."  Jessica further states, "Not only are we highlighting museum-quality works, we are providing on-site educational opportunities for new and seasoned collectors, as well as choosing one talented artist for the first year of our newly established residency program." 

The Artists in Residency Program is a four-to-six-week program in Martha's Vineyard for promising artists. The chosen artist will have an opportunity to return to the Vineyard, engage with the local community, showcase their work, and be featured at Art on the Vine in 2017. A portion of the proceeds from this event will directly support this residency program.
