Knowhere Art Gallery oversees contemporary fine-art exhibition spaces on Martha’s Vineyard and online.
Why MV: The gallery was conceived by co-owners Valerie Francis and Ralph H. Groce III. Francis began going to Martha’s Vineyard as a child to visit her great-uncle and aunt, who were very active in the community. Like so many others, she fell in love with the island.
Preserving Black history on the island: Francis and Groce are committed to illuminating Black history by amplifying artists in the historical arts district of Oak Bluffs.
