Nightlife in Reverse

The second of two special presentations at the Martha’s Vineyard Museum ~ produced by PathwaysARTS, and videographer, Jon Baer. Experience the Remarkable World of Richard Lee in a whole new way – under the night sky! In this hour-long program, the front of the MV Museum will be transformed into a digital canvas, on which the characters that inhabit Richard’s paintings will come to life and run, flutter, and lope across the building with the same playful spirit that Richard brought to his work.Saturday, July 10th, 2021 – 9 to 10pm.

Free and Open to All. There will be no formal program on the MVM campus so please feel free to observe the projection show from wherever you’d like, including the lawn. Bring your own blanket or chair.

This evening is a complimentary event as an extension to the current exhibition:
Life in Reverse: The Remarkable World of Richard Lee
Through July 25th, 2021
Hollinshead and Fleischner Family GalleriesFrom the uninhibited subconscious of Richard Lee (1933-2012) evolved an engaging, original, and irreverent universe: one filled with reccurring anthropomorphic and zoomorphic figures, cherubs and rose-headed babies, magicians and mystics, winged genitalia and androgynous teacups – to name a few of the delightful and mysterious characters he reverse-painted onto glass panes. A world traveler who found his way to the Island in the 1970s, Richard quickly became a beloved West Tisbury figure – from his early days as proprietor of the Dessert Gallerie to the warm and welcoming “Sunday Soirees” held at the Chicamoo Gallery off Lambert’s Cove Road.
This immersive exhibition will take visitors on a journey into Richard’s world and through his decades-long career, exploring the themes that wove through his work into a narrative that continues to amuse, inspire, and mystify.
