The Martha’s Vineyard Museum is hosting a reception tonight, March 15, for its latest spotlight gallery. These are short-term galleries devoted to rarely seen collections, new acquisitions and curators’ favorites. The latest spotlight was curated by the museum’s Facebook fans and Twitter followers. Over the past few weeks, these friends have voted on their favorite objects in the museum collection. The winners are now on exhibit.
A Ray Ellis watercolor received the most “likes” from the public. Featured in this exhibition is a series by Mr. Ellis from the 1980s that depicts the drama of a cold-water whale hunt in the Antarctic. The artist donated the series to the museum.
The reception is from 5 to 7 p.m. Admission is free for members and $7 for nonmembers.
