As of January 2017, after careful consideration following 23 memorable years of continuous operations, we closed Willoughby Fine Art Gallery at our North Water Street location in Edgartown. We owe a debt of gratitude to our entire client base as well as the very gifted group of artists we brought together to demonstrate their creative talents to all those who consider the Vineyard the special place that it truly is. Many of our artists have been with us for 15-20 years and their names have become synonymous with Willoughby Fine Art Gallery. Closing the gallery represents the end of an era but the closing is not “The END”. The artists of course were the first to be informed of our decision and their expressed disappointment was unanimous. As a result we agreed to preserve our dealer/artist relationship but not in the traditional gallery setting. We will continue our practice of sending periodic updates to our well established list of contacts and collectors via email which will include photographic attachments of available works.
