On Friday, June 13, there will be an unveiling at The Workshop gallery, 32 Beach Road, Vineyard Haven of portraits of boat designer and builder Nat Benjamin and clothing designer Stina Sayre. The artist is Elizabeth R. Whelan who has painted many portraits of well-known Vineyard residents.
The event takes place from 4 to 7 p.m., with the unveiling occurring precisely at 5 p.m. The subjects will be in attendance, getting their first look at their likeness, too. The portraits will hang in the gallery until June 14.
On Saturday, June 14, Ms. Whelan will demonstrate tips for painting from photo reference.
The gallery is located across from the Art Cliff Diner, in the former offices of Century 21 and next to Gannon & Benjamin Marine Railway.
