2013

Eli Dagostino stands out. But it’s not the shock of well-groomed bright red hair. And it’s not the ankle-skimming plum-colored chinos, cream-colored waffle tee and elegantly-tied brown chukka shoes.

It’s his energy.

Michael Zide, a former Island resident, Vineyard Gazette photographer and current instructor at the Hallmark Institute of Photography, will present images of the Vineyard landscape and lead a photography discussion at the Williston Northampton School in Easthampton on Tuesday, April 23. The lecture, An Exploration of Time, Fact and Imagination: the Changing World of Landscape Photography, will feature black-and-white landscapes from Mr. Zide’s time on the Vineyard between 1969 and 1982.

Today, Nov. 2, from 4 to 6 p.m. there will be an artists reception for Kye Howell and Ilao Jackson of the So Focused Photography Group. The reception takes place at the photography gallery at The WorkOut and Tennis Center located at the Airport Road in West Tisbury.

If anyone is headed to New York city next weekend, local photographer Michael Zide will be featured at the PhotoPlus International Expo to be held at the Javitz Center on Oct. 25 to 27.

Mr. Zide will have a collection of his Martha’s Vineyard and Western Massachusetts images on display as well as participating in a print-signing which takes place between 10:30 a.m. and noon on Friday, Oct. 26. Visit michaelzide.com.

Lanny McDowell

The Island art community will witness a double debut this weekend — the opening of Lanny McDowell’s solo painting exhibition and the first solo art exhibition held at the Tashmoo Spring building.

The building, known as the Tisbury Waterworks, has undergone extensive renovations in the past few years. The town has begun renting it out as a venue for weddings, art exhibitions and a youth theater camp. Once used to house water pumps, it now has high ceilings, brick walls and tall windows.
