The Field Gallery will host a Cancer Support Group benefit exhibition, with a free public reception on Sunday, August 24, from 5 to 7 p.m.

This is the seventh year that the gallery has hosted a benefit to aid local causes. A portion of the proceeds from sales of original art work will benefit the Martha’s Vineyard Cancer Support Group, a nonprofit that helps Islanders living with cancer.

Artists represented include Ben Johnson, Janet Woodcock, Jhenn Watts and Marlee Brewster Brockman. Artwork also can be viewed and purchased online
