North Water Gallery (formerly Gardner Colby Gallery) in Edgartown invites everyone to an artist’s reception for Suzanne Crocker on Thursday, June 26, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Inspired primarily with barns and seaside cottages, Ms. Crocker explores color, shape and mood through her bold and dynamic paintings. Her foundation is a vivid orange canvas and layers color to create an image which can be both soothing and intense. Since her introduction, she has quickly become a favorite here.

The gallery is open daily 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 27 North Water street in Edgartown.
