Art in the Stacks: Lynn Hoeft
A lifelong painter, Lynn has been on the Vineyard since 1971, with brief
stints away in California, New York and Vermont. Most often painting from a bird's eye view, her watercolors and colored pencil drawings often include shells and stones from the beach, along with leaves, seeds and berries. Whether she's walking around town, through the woods or at the beach, the artist is always on the lookout for moss, shells and feathers to add to her next painting. Lynn teaches watercolor and calligraphy classes at Featherstone Center for the Arts in Oak Bluffs.
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.
