Highfield Hall: The Intimate Woods
September 22 - November 16, 2012
Gallery Hours ~ Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm; Sunday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm; closed Saturday. $5 suggested admission/members free.
Inspired by the flora, fauna and intimate details of Beebe Woods which surround Highfield Hall, this exhibition features the work of ten regional fiber artists including Salley Mavor, Helen Koehler, and Joyce Shutter. The artists’ creative interpretations of the natural world are enlivened by a wide range of media: from handmade papers, felting, beadwork and collage to various forms of fine needlework. This exhibition serves as a reminder that our observations of nature are ever expansive and the rare and delicate lady’s slippers barely noticed at our feet can offer as grand an experience as the stately beech trees that have reigned over Beebe Woods for decades. This exhibition has been made possible in part by support from the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod and the Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank Charitable Foundation Trust.
