Murals at the Old Whaling Church take a break from Margot Datz’s brush until next winter. Meanwhile, she has returned to her studio to create paintings on a different scale for her annual show this Saturday, August 9, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Grange Hall.

This year’s theme, Mischief, features 12 small paintings rich in fine detail, as petite as the church’s wall are grand.

Ms. Datz is known for her murals on the Island, as well as for having illustrated books for Carly Simon, Vineyard Stories and her own book, A Survival Guide for Landlocked Mermaids with Beyond Words/Atria.

Her one-night-only reception will also exhibit her signed limited edition prints.
