Art Exhibit and Reception: Alexis Russillo

Saturday, February 1 from 3:30-5:00 pm, all are invited to an art reception at the West Tisbury Library featuring the work of Island artist Alexis Russillo. This exhibit contains 17 oil on canvas landscape paintings depicting beautiful scenes from around the Island. Alexis’s work will be on display in the library’s Community Room throughout the month of February. The reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. 

About the artist:

Alexis grew up in West Tisbury. She attended West Tisbury Elementary and the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School where she found herself much more interested in art class than academics. Her preference for art classes inevitably brought her to study at The Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy, where she was classically trained in realism figurative painting. Since she returned from Italy, Alexis reestablished residency in Martha’s Vineyard and works here as a landscape painter.
