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!

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.

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.
