“People’s Choice” Voting Page

Welcome to the Martha’s Vineyard Museum’s voting page for the Island Faces Portrait Competition. Here you can browse all of the submissions, read their statements and vote for your favorite one.

We received nearly 60 submissions, and want to thank all of the talented artists for their time and energy. Our wonderful judges will be making their selections, and the winners will be featured in an exhibition at the Martha’s Vineyard Museum from June 15 – October 6. To allow for impartial judging, the names of the artists have been left off of this site. If you would like to know more, please visit the exhibition or email acarringer@mvmuseum.org.

Why Vote?

By voting on this site for your favorite portrait, you will help determine the winners for a “People’s Choice” exhibition at Featherstone Center for the Arts in October. The voting for “People’s Choice” will be open until August, so please share this site with others. Please only vote one time.

    Great idea and interesting to find myself voting for the person as much as the artistry of the image -many fine portraits

    Can’t they all be winners???? So much fun reading the stories! I do wish the artists names were revealed….but perhaps some objectivity would have been lost.

  17. ronnie says:

    go krista..proud to be pinoy!

  18. Mark Lepiten says:

    It seems all entries deserves appaluse for such great work of art and its really difficult choosing the best among the best. After a tough mind boggling decision, my vote finally ends for Krista. Beyond the portrait of a pretty and sophisticated lady lies a woman devoted and focused to reach her dreams and aspirations but then she still humbly looks back from her path with a content smile. The portait in charcoal shows her hidden simplicity in black and white yet still the vividness of her wild imagination remains clear to be seen. Krista’s playful depiction of art does not only limit to beautiful images drawn but she extends a hidden meaning and purpose of each material in her canvas, interpreted and admired deeper than what the naked eye can only see… Cheers for Krista!!!

  19. G,T Waters says:

    Win or lose Heather, you are tops, luck to you all, George Waters

  32. Kenneth Hatt says:

    Dad i like the detail on the shirt.Good job,Kenny

    • Cathy Minkiewicz says:

      What a great idea! This introduces both Vineyarders and artists to the larger public. It also makes us think as to what constitutes a”portrait”, because in my definition some of these are outside that definition. Thanks! CHM

  33. Kylie Hatt says:

    Dad, I love your painting! It is truly amazing. Kylie 🙂

  34. Robin Nagle says:

  36. Geoffrey b says:

    This is wonderful! Does there have to be just one…they are all superb, and are all winners.

  37. Binnie Ravitch says:

    These are ALL fantastic, but I had to vote for the extraordinary photo portrait of Ray Ellis – It’s as buoyant and evocative of the island as his own wonderful paintings!

  38. L. Ambler says:

    Chef Jones, Andrue, the haunting Hall Monitor. . . and I may vote for only one?

  39. D M Blackburn says:

    What a terrific selection of portraits and stories! So many talented people on this island. Just wondering why photos and paintings/drawings were judged together? Different skill levels are needed for these equally important art forms, so I was simply wondering how the decision to mix both art forms in this contest came about. Thanks for the opportunity to reply.

  40. eric h says:

    Great job on Fred ! Amazing color

  41. Patricia Carlet says:

    What an incredible collection of portraits! How can I select just one? Not only is this array a feast for the eyes, but also an amazing collection of Island biographies. Well done, Featherstone! Thank you for the opportunity.

  42. holly says:

    the ruth adams sketch is sooo beautiful, thanks for sharing.

  43. feelingmo says:

    @nina…then you have to identify yourself that u’re Filipino, be proud to be one!

  44. Claudia Metell says:

    The artist captured the essense of Tom

  45. Brenda W. Lynch says:

    These mighty, mighty Vineyarders will lead us into the future!
