Give Me Shelter is not just a Rolling Stones song — it is now an art benefit for the homeless on Martha’s Vineyard.

Over two dozen Island artists have donated work for a two-day art sale at the Grange Hall in West Tisbury—Tuesday and Wednesday, August 3 and 4 — to benefit Harbor Homes of Martha’s Vineyard, whose mission is ensure that low-income residents have access to safe, sanitary, and secure housing. In June of 2020 the organization opened its first home for men, and earlier this year purchased a home for women. It also operates a winter shelter and warming center on the Island.

The show is from 2 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday. There will also be a reception on Tuesday from 5 to 8:30 p.m.

Artists include Allen Whiting, Wendy Weldon, Rez Williams, Kara Taylor, Billy Hoff, Marjorie Mason, Colin Ruel, Jeanne Staples, Richard Erickson, Jennifer Joanou, Ruth Kirchmeier, Cindy Kane and many others.
