Seven of Cape Cod’s most renowned abstract artists, Mike Carroll, Bert Yarborough, Bailey Bob Bailey, Francie Randolph, Jan Lhormer, Carol Odell and Betty Caroll Fuller, join together to display their work in the elegant rooms of Highfield Hall for an exhibition of abstract work inspired by organic forms. Visitors may view the exhibit August 3 through September 16. Highfield Hall is open Monday – Friday from 10 am to 4 pm and also on Sundays from 10 am to 1 pm. Admission is free of charge, although donations are welcome. A free reception with the artists will take place on August 26 from 5 to 7 pm at the mansion. Tyler Singer-Clark will be at the piano with Chef Gail Blakely providing the food. A slide show will feature additional work from the artists, as well as share the story of the Highfield Gallery which brought abstract artists to Highfield Hall in the 1950s.
Most of the art will be available for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Historic Highfield. Historic Highfield Inc. is celebrating 15 years as a nonprofit organization.
