Concierge.com's insider take:

Housed in a restored grain-storage barn, the Granary Gallery displays a captivating collection of art by artists with connections to the island. There are signed black-and-white prints by Alfred Eisenstadt, the Life photographer who held his first commercial show here, and works by muralist and painter Thomas Hart Benton, who summered on the Vineyard as an adult. Among the others on display are island photographer Alison Shaw; summer resident and extraordinary super-realist Heather Nell; and Scott Terry, a commercial striped-bass fisherman, who paints brilliantly colored oils of Vineyard scenes. Prices range from $250 to $250,000, and the antiques that decorate the gallery are also for sale (as is a small selection of new handcrafted jewelry). Openings of new shows are held every other week in an open courtyard behind the barn (check the Web site for info). But what really sets the Granary apart are its owners, Chris and Sheila Morse, who are as friendly and unpretentious as they are knowledgeable, although the off-street parking helps too. The Morses also run the Field Gallery in West Tisbury, which has more contemporary art and sculpture than the Granary (1050 State Rd.; 508-693-5595; fieldgallery.com), and the North Water Gallery in Edgartown, with more traditional works (27 North Water St.; 508-627-6002; northwatergallery.com).
