Artist Donates Work

William Ross Searle, a Cape Cod landscape painter and Vineyard native who grew up in Edgartown, recently bequeathed 58 works to the Cahoon Museum of American Art in Cotuit, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Mr. Searle works in both acrylics and watercolor; his paintings are held in private, corporate, museum and institutional collections throughout the United States and Europe. A announcement about the gift appears in the spring edition of Spyglass, the museum’s quarterly publication.
