April 15 – June 4

“I came to aerial photography at a time when I was seeking a new turn and view of the world. The perspective from above was exhilarating. After thirty years my art and travel background found a new focus.”

Around The House and In The Gardens - Winter, Spring, Summer & Fall!
The Spirits of the Garden by Alfred Glover
The life that inhabits the branches of the tree is protected and watched over by spiritual entities, fairies, angels, good doer. So the tree represents the portals and passageways between the spiritual, and the living.These sprites are represented by the glass inserts in some of the branches! These spirits often seek the cover of trees and wooded areas. They are sometimes mistaken for lightning bugs, or even shooting stars! They can be found wherever life exists!

Artist Statement: I feel like I am the best version of myself when I am working outside in nature creating with me hands. I was inspired by some photos that I saw about environmental art and wanted the opportunity and challenge of creating something truly artistic.
Fragment House by Danielle Krcmar
Danielle currently serves as Artist in Residence at Babson College and has exhibited widely in the New England area. Her extraordinary sculpture, Fragment House, is the first interactive, environmental artwork that has graced the lawns of Highfield Hall & Gardens. It calls attention to Beebe Woods as the backdrop for Highfield Hall and the domestic components of Highfield’s archtecture and history.
A Wind in the Door by Angela Tanner
Hibernating for the winter, coming back in the spring.
A fairy tale gate that announces the presence of things unseen. When open, it allows humans and other earthly creatures to pass. When closed, fairies, spirits, and other wind-borne creatures can still move through it, and the sounds of the gate panels are the only evidence that they were here at all. The gate is not only inspired by things that dwell in Beebe Woods, but also by the fantastical creatures in some of the artist’s favorite childhood stories. Books are portals to the imagination, and their pages are passageways to other realms. The panels of this gate are filled with illustrations of benevolent creatures that have transported the storybook characters to other places or have transformed them in some way.
