FELDMAN FAMILY ARTSPACE ARTISTS
A selection committee organized by the Featherstone Center for the Arts recently reviewed the artwork of dozens of Island artists to show at The Martha’s Vineyard Film Center. Artist submissions included painting, photography, mixed media and sculpture.
Jury members were given the task of narrowing the submissions to 9 show slots, plus the annual VCS/MVRHS student art contest and from the Gretchen V. Feldman permanent collection. Selections were based on technical, graphic and aesthetic criteria, as well as a balance of media and styles suitable for The Film Center Artspace.
Anyone interested in purchasing a piece of art should contact Featherstone Center for the Arts at 508.693.1850. All works will remain hanging throughout the duration of the shows. Each artist has agreed to donate 15% of the purchase price to the Martha’s Vineyard Film Society of any artworks sold during the show.
For those artists interested in showing their work in 2021, please submit an application to email@example.com. The application is available on their website: featherstoneart.org, under Exhibitions, click on Feldman Family Artspace and scroll to the bottom of the page.

The Feldman Family Artspace at the Martha’s Vineyard Film Center exists thanks to the generous contribution of Sam Feldman and his continued support of the visual arts.
Guidelines for the Feldman Family Artspace include:
Art work will hang for 3 or 4 weeks depending upon the season. The art will be hung by the artist under the supervision, and with the assistance of the Featherstone curatorial team
Artwork must be framed or presented in a professional manner in keeping with the high standards of The Film Center.
A reference sheet of titles, price list and artist biography will also be hung with the work. Anyone interested in purchasing a piece of art should contact Featherstone Center for the Arts at 508.693.1850. All works will remain hanging throughout the duration of the shows. The Film Center asks for a 15% donation for any works sold.
Red dots will be placed near any works that have been sold over the duration of the show.
The show will be advertised on The Film Center Facebook page and by direct e-mail to members. Any additional mailings or newspaper announcements or a formal opening and/or refreshments are the responsibility of the artist and needs to be coordinated with the management of the Film Society.
We will make every effort to protect all artwork. The Film Center is a secure building with a burglar alarm and sprinklers. Art is insured up to $10,000 (additional coverage can be made if needed).
