Hewett Works Show

Vineyard Haven painter Edward Hewett will show his recent work at the Cary Library in Lexington, in a well-known exhibition program that features outstanding New England-area artists.

Some of the paintings have been exhibited on the Vineyard at the Dragonfly Gallery, the Chilmark Library and Featherstone Center for the Arts, and are in private collections in Boston and the Vineyard. Others are large, new work, not shown previously.

Mr. Hewett was a professor of art at Ohio State and other universities in the United States and England before coming to the Vineyard in 1971 to initiate the full-time art program at the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School. Many Vineyarders are familiar with his murals at the Vineyard Haven and Chilmark public libraries, and his painted wooden chests.

The Lexington show will run through the month of October.
