Art Exhibit at the West Tisbury Library: Paul Doherty

Paul Doherty

September 2023

On Saturday, September 16, from 3:00-4:30 PM, come to the West Tisbury Library for an art reception celebrating our artist of the month, Paul Doherty. Paul’s work will be on display in the Library’s community room throughout the month of September. This event is free and open to the public.


Paul’s exhibition at the West Tisbury Library features an eclectic mix of photos of Martha’s Vineyard, including a number of botanical sunset silhouettes focusing on light and color. Paul says that many of these were taken when the Island sky was affected by wildfires out West, creating unusually beautiful colors.
About the artist: Paul was a professional actor for 35 years before retiring to the Vineyard in 2013. He currently serves on the board of Vineyard Village at Home, as Vice President as well as a volunteer driver. He also serves on the Massachusetts Cultural Council. He lives in West Tisbury with his spouse David Behnke and their two “goofy” Gordon setters, Cooper and Rufus.





The West Tisbury Library hosts monthly art exhibits in the beautiful Community Program Room. Art exhibits are arranged by the West Tisbury Library Art Committee. If you are interested in scheduling an exhibit, please contact the Art Committee Chair at artwtfpl@gmail.com.
