From sailboats on the water to skyscrapers in the city and sunsets at the coast, these established painters honor the scenic elements of the Northeast.
North Water Gallery in Edgartown, Massachusetts, on scenic Martha’s Vineyard, debuts a three-person exhibition of fine marine paintings and cityscapes this evening. The show features recent paintings bySergio Roffo, Ken Auster, and Brandon Newton. An artists’ reception takes place from 5-7 p.m.

Ken Auster, “Stable Profession,” oil on panel, 16 x 20 in. North Water Gallery
A selection of oil paintings from each featured artist manifests their individual talents. Sizes range from an 8-by-10-inch small work to a grand, 3-by-6-foot canvas. Some of the smaller paintings are priced around $1,000, while others are as high as $30,000.

Sergio Roffo, “Sunset Comes to Cape Poge,” oil on canvas, 24 x 36 in. North Water Gallery
Roffo presents a series of tranquil coastal landscapes in soft hues, while Auster exhibits energetic cityscapes that are scenic in a different sense of the word. Newton’s paintings also focus on the latter genre, picturing evenings on Martha’s Vineyard with an economy of brushstrokes and striking color.
