Portals and Passageways @ Highfield Hall

July 1, 2014 by Trish Robinson

Portals and Passageways @ Highfield Hall is a incredible undertaking where the show features the work of 25 regional artists who have created artworks throughout Highfield Hall’s remarkable mansion and the surrounding grounds and gardens. Annie Dean, Highfield’s director of programs and exhibitions is the curator for the show. In creating the show Annie sought to have visitors explore the property and the adjacent Beebe Woods coming from a new point of view. The concept is that visitors will embark on passageways that will guide them to new places and portals that encourage a new point of view. A number of temporary environmental works will be on display between June 29th and September 7th as well as some more permanent sculptures that were installed in the spring. Artisans include those skilled in sculpture, fiber art, landscape design, glass blowing, photography and painting. The exhibition is created as a walking tour that starts inside Highfield Mansion and then continues through the grounds.
