Senioritis showcases the work of Falmouth High School art students. These graduating seniors present engaging, inspiring, and thought-provoking work in a wide range of media. This will be the 15th annual senioritis show at Highfield Hall, a tradition started by Jane Baker and Barbara Milligan in 2007 as a way to feature the artistic talents of the senior students in a beautiful setting.
Every person deserves the color, texture and vibrancy a work of fine art can bring to a space. Small Works Art is a company, inspired by Claudia Nimar of Falmouth, dedicated to making petite, quality paintings accessible to the public.
Highfield is excited to host this artful display featuring millinery tools, materials, and accessories from a New Bedford milliner’s business archive. Shown throughout the interior of the house, this exhibition will be a first-time look into the work and business of Elsie Rebello, a creative entrepreneur, mother, and teacher who at the age of 92, has never stopped making hats.
Highfield Hall opens 2021 with the American Tapestry Biennial 13, an installation featuring 35 tapestries from around the world. This will be Highfield’s first exhibition showcasing the international juried show featuring the finest contemporary tapestry weaving.
Togetherness celebrates and documents a unique period in the recent history of Falmouth and the surrounding communities of Bourne, Mashpee, and Sandwich. Business owner and local photographer Lee Geishecker, together with realtor and community business organizer Annie Hart Cool, produced a visual diary of people in these communities affected by the unprecedented restrictions and limits to normal life brought on by COVID 19.
We encounter many edges in our lives – the edge between water and land, land and sky, day and night, fall and winter, hope and discouragement. We can equally live on the edge, negotiating a path between difficult options or exploring life to its limits. Artists were invited to explore and present their own interpretation of the theme, “Edges”.
New Exhibit this holiday season, keeping safety protocols in mind, is located on the front lawn with A Passing Fancy as its backdrop. In the fairy house tradition, the miniature village will be created using natural elements, and feature representations of woodland creatures, gnomes, tiny worlds, in a holiday theme if one wishes.
Ancestry + Legacy is a meditation on how past, present, and future are inextricably intertwined.
Artists in the show contemplate how their own unique ancestries influence both their present lives and future legacies. This theme manifests in a vast range of media and subject matter, as each artist has a unique background and thus offers a different perspective.
This was the 14th annual senioritis show at Highfield Hall, a tradition started by Jane Baker and Barbara Milligan in 2007 when Falmouth High School was under construction. Over the years, the show has become an event that is greatly anticipated and cherished by the senior class. Thanks so much for helping us to continue the tradition virtually this year and giving this special opportunity to our students!

Returning to Highfield Hall & Gardens for summer 2020 – “Lessons from the Fairies” allows us to imagine what nature spirits can teach us about our lives, and the positive impact we can have on the earth.
Juried Art Show at Falmouth's Highfield Hall produced by Art Because... We are women. We are artists. We are over sixty. What do we have to say? We were teens & young adults in the 1960’s. Now, sixty years later, what is it we want to say to the world through our art? Let’s look at over sixty pieces of art by women over sixty who all grew up in the sixties. Then maybe we can answer some of these questions.
The show opens the 2020 season for the house and frames the historic home, Highfield Hall, as a valuable cultural resource from our past. The exhibition honors the notion of home, and places the Victorian period house in its greater historical context. The scope of the installation will include objects from the late-nineteenth century, decorative arts and artifacts of the Colonial Revival movement, and galleries showcasing contemporary art.
This exhibition features artworks by nationally recognized tapestry artists working in New England and selected works from around the country.

We spend our lives moving from building to building, often focused on our destination, overlooking the beauty of the natural world that surrounds us. This exhibit requires that artists step outside, literally, to observe this natural environment and then share the textures, colors and patterns as well as the emotions it evokes using fiber as the medium to communicate their vision.
