Art in the Stacks: Peter Dreyer

The Friends of the Vineyard Haven Library are pleased to present an exhibit of photographs by Peter Dreyer. The exhibit will be on display on the lower level of the library, during regular library hours throughout the month of September.

Peter Dreyer had his own commercial photography business for 39 years. Now retired to Martha's Vineyard, he still uses black and white film and a "wet" darkroom. His portfolio consists of landscape and nature photography as well as prints manipulated in various ways to create interesting effects. None of the effects in his prints are done with the help of PhotoShop. 

The Vineyard Haven Public Library's "Art in the Stacks" space features rotating monthly exhibits and is managed by the Friends of the Library. The library also has a permanent collection of artworks that are displayed throughout the year, including 12 paintings by Vineyard artist Captain John Ivory. Artists interested in showing their work may contact the library at (508) 696-4210.
