Longer Days

The days are getting longer, forsythia buds are visible and lambing season is almost over. With only one real snow storm behind us, we might say that Winter 2024 is almost history. Between hauling wood, tending the fires and the farm, Allen has managed to spread some paint on canvases in his studio.

Allen has also been investing his time helping the Martha's Vineyard Museum put on an exhibit of his maternal Grandfather, Percy E. Cowen's (1883-1923) work: "Percy E. Cowen: My Own Dearest Jane". It showcases Cowen's inspired Vineyard Landcapes, various vivid illustrations and letters to his wife Jane with sketches of the war in Europe. Curated by MVM's Bonnie Stacy, the show will continue through May 26.

The Davis House Gallery's 2024 season will begin quietly on Saturday, June 29 when we open at 1pm. Our plan is to include some of Percy Cowen's work for viewing as well.

If you missed our 2023 Mid Summer Gallery Gathering, put it on your calendar for this year now. It will be the last Sunday in July, which is July 28th, 2024 from 6-8 pm.
