Highfield Hall: The Words of Katherine Lee Bates interpreted in Fiber and Paint
September 4 - October 31, 2013
Gallery Hours: Monday through Friday 10am to 4pm; Sundays 10am to 2pm; closed Saturdays.
Under the guidance of curator Shawn Nelson, a group of 22 Cape Cod fiber artists and painters worked in pairs to inspire each other in a weaver/painter collaboration of Falmouth native, Katherine Lee Bates’ America the Beautiful. Reinvigorating the poem’s original intent and giving new meaning to Bates’s patriotic lyrics, each pair of painters and weavers chose a line from the song and worked in partnership on its interpretation to produce images that would offer the viewer a new sense of the anthem’s vision and inspiration.
