Art on North Water

North Water Gallery will open a show for Michael Frith and Ray Ellis with an artist reception on Thursday, August 12 from 5 to 7 p.m.

An internationally celebrated watercolorist, Michael Frith shares his passion for sailing and the beauty of the sea through his paintings. His book Yacht features his works paired with quotations and writings by several notable sailing enthusiasts.

Ray Ellis, one of the Vineyard’s most beloved painters, has a long history with the Island and needs little introduction. He works in both oil and watercolor, and is known internationally, with works in museums and private collections across the country, including the White House collection.

The North Water Gallery is located on North Water street in Edgartown. The telephone number is 508-627-6002, or visit
