October Feature William Ross Searle

Painting by William Searle

William Ross Searle was born and raised on Martha's Vineyard Island. A 10th generation Island native, his early experiences with Island life and changing seasons is strongly etched into his paintings and drawings. He works comfortably with both acrylic and watercolor mediums. He paints New England, especially the perimeter of the seashore, where light, weather and tide unite with human activity in a rich pronouncement of man and his life. He earned his B.F.A. degree in painting and drawing at Massachusetts College of Art and his M.F.A. degree at Rhode Island School of Design. He teaches part time in the Art Department at Thayer Academy when he is not in his studio, in Mashpee, Massachusetts, painting. His paintings span four decades and are included in over five hundred private, corporate, institutional and museum collections throughout the United States and Europe.
