“Many artists think they are better cooks than anyone else,” says Nancy Shaw Cramer, owner of the eponymous gallery in Vineyard Haven. They bring a dash of creativity and a dollop of fearlessness to the kitchen. At least, that’s what Nancy has seen in the mixed-media artists group she founded in 1996. She says the potters think they are best, since their art is based on recipes. But Nancy is quick to defend all artists as chefs, arguing, for instance, that painters tend to make their work personal – both on the canvas and in the kitchen.
