On Island: Women Artists of Monhegan is the catalogue from the University of New England Art Gallery’s July 26 - September 23, 2007 exhibition featuring works by 36 women artists who capture the essence of Monhegan Island and its role in the history of American fine art. There is a powerful sense of place, from dramatic, swift changes in light, color and nuance, to giant cliffs, swirling tide pools, and rocks that come in all sizes and hues, as well as island life and people. Their art covers the most recent 50 years on an island that has attracted artists since the 1850's. The exhibition includes work from Ruth Boynton, Lynne Drexler, Jacqueline Hudson, Jan McCartin, Sue Rosenthal, Jo Levy, Sylvia Alberts, Dyan Berk, Nancy Thompson Brown (N.T. Brown), Kate Cheney Chappell, Yolanda Fusco, Elena Jahn, Frances Kornbluth, Lucia Miller, Sylvia Murdock, Frankie Odom, Joan Rappaport, Elaine Reed, Joanne Scott, Arline Simon, Beth Van Houten, Alice Boynton, Corlis Carroll, Donna Cundy, Susan Gilbert, Joan Harlow, Alison Hill, Norma Kaplis, Maiken Kunces, Nita Minewski, Victoria Nelson, Helen Prince, Daphne Pulsifer, Sandra Mason Dickson, Carol Raybin and Florence Taylor Martin.
