BEAUTY: Art in Dialogue with Nature
At Highfield Hall & Gardens
An invitation from: Annie Dean, Director of Programs and Exhibitions at Highfield Hall & Gardens
For this exhibition we are seeking works that highlight the artists’ interpretation of the natural beauty of Cape Cod – the land, sea and skyscapes, as well as the world beneath the sea. Selection of artwork will be made based on how prints ‘speak’ to one another visually and thematically to create a viewer experience that encapsulates a sense of beauty. Both realistic and abstract works are appropriate.
We request that the artworks represent the artist’s current work, have not been exhibited in the region, and have been produced within the last three years. Artists should include a short (50 word) artist statement. Members may enter up to 5 works for the selection process. Diptychs should be considered two pieces.
ENTRY: To apply for consideration, please send jpegs labeled with artist last name, artwork title,
and dimensions in inches to email@example.com Up to 5 pieces may be selected by an
individual artist, so works created as a series will be considered.
PRESENTATION: All works must be framed and ready to hang with eye hooks or D-rings. No hanging wires are required as Highfield installs the works from hanging rails with filament. Simple frames and white or cream mats are requested. Highfield has a history of robust art sales and artists receive 70% of the price of sold works. All artwork is fully insured while on the premises.
Beauty: Art in Dialogue with Nature will be hung in Highfield’s first floor galleries. Anyone
unfamiliar with the venue is welcome to schedule a visit at any time by contacting Jennifer
Nemec, Assistant Director of Programs and Exhibitions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The exhibition will receive increased exposure to regional curators and exhibition directors as it
will be on display during the New England Museum Association annual conference which takes
place in North Falmouth in October.
July 2 – July 22: jpegs submitted to Jennifer Nemec, email@example.com or mail: P.O. Box 494, Falmouth, MA 02541, or fax: 508-495-0890. Jpegs must be labeled with artist last name, artwork titles, and dimensions in inches. Up to 5 works will be considered.

Highfield Hall & Gardens is a fully restored 1878 estate located in Falmouth, MA. The mansion is open for visitation from April 15 – October 31; however programs, events, and functions continue year round. Highfield is neither a traditional white walled gallery space, nor a museum with objects and period furnishing, but serves as a regional cultural center. Art exhibitions are a central component of its community offerings. In 2017, Highfield has planned 11 exhibitions by local, regional and international artists. Highfield also hosts a vibrant music program, culinary classes, festivals, garden programs, open houses, and children and family programs.
