Since its inception in 2008, the abstract show at Vineyard Haven’s Louisa Gould Gallery has established a solid place in the Island’s summer art scene. While a number of galleries include abstract work, Ms. Gould believes that hers is the only one that annually devotes an entire show to abstraction.
This year she has six artists in Landscapes of Color, which opens August 8, with a reception on Saturday, August 10. They are Val Rossman, Joan Konkel, Susanne Hill, Roberta Gross, Laura Roosevelt, and Jeanne Campbell.
New this year to the gallery is Ms. Rossman, who lives in Philadelphia. She works in pastel and mixed media. In pastels like “It Was Also Brilliant” and “Held their Own,” this artist wields the medium with a fluidness akin to watercolor.
